    curses and ncurses work for *nix consoles
    graphics in the linux console are impossible except through the svgalib and the recently added framebuffer. svgalib has a lot of problems, a steep learning curve, and the superuser limitation.


    for dos, you might be able to include "dos.h" and/or "conio.h"
    for dos graphics, you might have to hack a bit or use something like allegro

    The Standard C Library for input/output.
    #include <stdio.h>

    Yah there's the 'conio.h' for DOS. Color and DOS-mode windowing stuff are placed there. In fact, I used that to create a menu and windowing system for my programs.
    All men are created equal. But some are more equal than others.
