    Cool Cursor location and graphics primer

    I'm a relatively new c programmer, and was wondering if their were any functions that would allow me to:

    1. Move my cursor location (or printing location) in a dos window when my c program runs. This way, I could control how many lines (top/down) I use.

    2. I know nothing about graphics with c and am interested in learning. Can someone help with a starter on a few functions and a header file I can use. Any suggestions would be nice - I can look up the functions if I know what to look for.

    Thanks,

    Joe
