    Cool Simple Snake Program Purely On "C"

    I would just want to ask questions on how to partly program snake using my current knowledge of "if-else, for, switch, while, printf/scanf, counters and using only int, float and char as variables... and also what to #include like <stdio.h> and what more...??? If you think I can with my knowledge of such...how should i start?? I mean it's my first time prgramming a GAME in C so i'm not yet familiar... with how to use other functions needed such as time.h and gotoxy...can u give me some tips or help probably?

    a sample program i programmed.. we are mostly mathematical based so GAMES are not familiar to me in programming:

    /*Asks the user to input a binary number then converts it into decimal*/
    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    main()
    {     int nBin, nDec, nMult, nDigit;
          printf("Enter Binary Number:");
          scanf("&#37;d", &nBin);
          
          nDec=0;
          nMult=1;
          
          while(nBin!=0)
          {nDigit=nBin%10;
          nDec+=nDigit*nMult;
          nMult*=2;
          nBin/=10;
          }
          printf("Decimal: %d", nDec);
          getchar();
          getchar();
    }
    note: BTW.., i'm just a freshman in college so don't be so harsh in programming terms.. i mean show tips on very basic c like the program i made... if you would like... thanks =D

    Figure out how to use code tags. This is the 2nd time. Put them around the code only, not your entire post, because it messes up the format and makes my eyes grow weaker trying to read it.

    And that's not what you want, right? Of course you don't want me going blind.

    Example:

    Example question goes here.

    [code]#include <stdio.h>

    int main(void)
    {
    return 0;
    }[/code]

    More example stuff here.

    With plain printf it will be hard. You do want to use some non standard C library for mowing your worm. I guess you could read some reference manual for ncurses library, and accomplish what you want with it

    Then you will struggle - the C standard library has no options for moving the cursor around on the screen.

    i think you can use some libraries such as conio.h, time.h, stdlib.h, and graphics.h...

    Yes, but conio.h is not part of the C standard - which is why I said what I said earlier. time.h and stdlib.h [if it follows the actual C standard, that is] does not contain any functions to move the cursor on a console screen.
