I'm working with OpenCV and C++. Have set up my project correctly, testing it by calling and displaying image, it succeed. Now I'm following simple basic tutorial for beginner and my code won't show up.

Here's the code

#include <iostream>
#include "opencv2\opencv.hpp"

using namespace std;
using namespace cv;

double square(double x) {
    return x*x;   }

void print_square(double x) {
    cout<<"Square of "<< x <<"is "<<square(x)<<endl; }

int main (int argv, char** arc) {

I have also carefully set my project as Console project, still nothing show on the console. There's no error as well. Any advice ?

Square of 2is 4

can it simply be, that you're running this from VS, and the console window closes, before you can see the output ?

btw, note, that waitKey() only has an effect, if there's a highgui window. without that, try a

int k;
cin >> k;

instead. (or run your exe from a cmdline, not your IDE)

Hi, thanks! Yes the window closes before I see any output. Also in this case, I don't need the user to input the number using cin. I'm just trying to call the method.

system("pause"); will also block nicely ;)

also, the problem will go away, once you start working with images, webcam, imshow() and such.
