Re: C++ Beginner
i don't understand what you mean by system intensive... system ("pause"); is much more efficent than cin.get();
using cin.get(); the user has to press enter, he's likely to press serveral buttons before hitting enter.
system ("pause"); informs you Press any key to continue... after a key is pressed it resumes...
and i'm curious to know who would be so troubled by it that they would call it "highly unrecommended"
only thing going for cin.get(); is it's more portable, system ("pause"); doesn't work all platforms. and there's pleanty of ways cin.get(); could fail. if you haven't cleared the input buffer before you use it, your program would just flick by anyway.
