I just finished writing selection sort and after my code was done I tried to run the program. After I give the needle as a command-line argument and input a couple of straws, I press ctr+d and nothing happens. The program doesn't continue its normal behaviour it just freezes and it doesn't let me quit it so I have to close the current terminal window and open a new one. Any ideas where does that come from?


This has every indication of being an infinite loop somewhere after the code that takes in the data. Look in any loops that follow. There's also a chance that it's waiting for input without having written a prompt, but unlikely.
