    ANSI C Graphics programming

    Hi! I'm fairly new to C programming and to the forum, does anyone know what commands I could use in ANSI C for graphics, such as line, boxes, circles etc...

    thank you for any help in advance.

    There are no ANSI C commands for doing graphics. Doing graphics is platform dependent. There are a lot of free graphic libraries for the popular platforms.

    Yes ANSI is a set of standards for the C language and not a library.

    If you want to work on graphics then you can start with Borland's BGI library. It's available with Borland's Turbo C or Turbo C++ compilers.

    They are nice for new comers.

    Later on you can move on to big brothers like Direct X or OpenGL.

    Ehm, Xoid didn't tell which OS he/she uses.
