I have to do a simple text editor using the c language. But I don't know how to get started. The program should begin with a blank screen, waiting for the user to write something.The last line will be the "situation" line which explains what the program is doing or asking us to do. The user is also able to move the cursor using the arrow keys and the user is also able to load text files to the program from his hard drive and also make a text file of something the user has written in the program. He can load something by pressing CTRL-O or he can press CTRL-S to save something followed by the name of the text file. Our professor said that we have to use the library screenUtils to make the cursor move. How should I start? I'm trying to make this work but nothing really works.
This is an example of how the screen should look like:
