questions / advice
With C ....or C++ is there a ( as simple as possible ) way to display a picture in dos? Do you need special runtime libraries that are compatible with C / C++ ? Also what kind of things would assembly be useful for learning?
resources i have ( all with included libraries ):
micrsoft visual c++
turbo C++ 1.01
..and a few others i believe
I believe you need a good compiler for the type of code you wish to write in, then you need the proper runtime libraries to assist you, correct?
Read the FAQ
The FAQ for this board has somthing about this.
It is quite easy to display Windows Bitmaps (BMP) in DOS. I think this is outlined in the FAQ, which you should read if you haven't. Here is some code which might help (attached). You will have to use a 320x200 256 colour non-compressed BMP with this (which you can create with mspaint).
