I am maintaining a console app under Visual C++ Code Name Orcas. I have debugging functions in the app that I call from the QuickWatch window. Some of those functions do I/O to/from stdin/stderr. MSVC++ has a timeout on input from stdin on the order of 10-20 seconds, after which control reverts from the console window back to the watch window dialog box. (It also occurs under VC++ 6.0.) This is extremely annoying; I often want to interact with the debugging function for an extended period. Is there any way to either eliminate or at least extend the timeout period? I have searched high and low for information on this; VS help has nothing, nor does MSDN. Thanks!
