    well, gotoxy you have in conio.h when we are talking about DOS. Now, if we're talking about Win32 console program, you can create
    Code:
    #include <windows.h> 
    
    void gotoxy(int x, int y)
    {
      COORD coord;
      coord.X = x;
      coord.Y = y;
      SetConsoleCursorPosition(GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE), coord);
    }
    About linux, ask in Linux programming.
