    Help...Help...Help...

    Can some one fix this for me?
    It has been a long time since I've used C and I'm having trouble with changing the text color and clear screen as you'll see...

    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    #include<conio.h>
    #include<math.h>
    #define   MAX  7
    int main(void)
    {
    
    	float m[MAX],f[MAX],t[MAX];
    	int i;
    	float max,min,avr;
    	for(i=0;i<MAX;i++)
    	{
    		scanf("%g%g",&m[i],&f[i]);
    
    		t[i]=0.3*m[i]+0.7*f[i];
    	}
    	
    	max=min=avr=t[0];
    
    	for(i=1;i<MAX;i++)
    	{
    		avr=avr+t[i];
    		if(max<t[i])
    			(max=t[i]);
    		if(min>t[i])
    			(min=t[i]);
    	}
    	avr=avr/MAX;
    
    	//clrscr();  what is this??!!!!!!!
    
    
    	for(i=0;i<MAX;i++)
    	{
    		if(t[i]<10)
    			textcolor(12);
    		else if(t[i]>12);
    			textcolor(10);
    		else
    			textcolor(14);
    
    		cprintf("%-8.2lg%-b.2lg%-8.2lg\n\n", m[i],f[i],t[i]);
    	}
    
    	textcolor(15);
    
    	cprintf("\n\n\rMAX=%lg\n\r MIN=%lg\n\r AVR=%lg\n\r", max,min,avr);
    
    	return (0);
    
    }

    clrscr()

    clrscr() clears screen just un comment it

    Your really need to:
    1) give an appropriate title to your posts
    2) tell us what really is wrong with your code. This thing won't even compile.
    3) Don't ask us to "fix this for me" but ask "the problem seems to be ...., any ideas what might be wrong?"

    Try compiling the code, look at the line number(s) where the compiler has a problem, and check your semi-colons. They are not correct in that area.

    It does not recognize clrscr() , it says undeclared identifier.
    the same for text color.

    And fyi, this is not my program, someone told me to fix this for them and i'm not an expert in C but rather VB. so any help is appreciated.

    And ofcourse it doesn't compile! DUH! if it did I wouldn't have a problem!

    thanx,

    Then your compiler does not have those functions -- and may not be able to deal with color and clearing the screen.

    The Borland 5.5 compiler works -- I got it compiled and after further modification, it runs.

    It's a free compiler, so check Borland's site for it.

    Figured it wasn't your code.

    Wanna bet? Once yours compiles, it will NOT work, so DUH! back.

    We're not psychic, you didn't mention it doesn't compile, how would we know this? Many programs don't work but compile fine.

    Sorry for the misunderstandig, I didn't mean to be rude...

    Thanx, for your help.

    I'm using MS Visual C++ to dompile this, does it make a difference? Do different compilers use different C language?

    Thanx,
    -Pooya

    Borland throws a lot of different functions and libraries into their compilers that aren't standard. Its not a different language per se since if you new how they did it you could do it also using regular C code.

    When you get away from the standard and into compiler enhancements, which this graphics stuff is, each compiler has its own way of dsoing things.

    For MSVC++ look into the "SETxxx" functions (SetTextColor I believe) .

    On AdrianXW's website, there are tutorials for adding color to text, etc in MSVC++.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    This compiles with dev-cpp but i;m not sure what its supposed to do....

    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    #include<conio.h>
    #include<math.h>
    
    #define   MAX  7
    
    int main(void)
    {
    
    	float m[MAX],f[MAX],t[MAX];
    	int i;
    	float max,min,avr;
    	
    	for(i=0;i<MAX;i++)
    	{
    		scanf("%g%g",&m[i],&f[i]);
    
    		t[i]=0.3*m[i]+0.7*f[i];
    	}
    	
    	max=min=avr=t[0];
    
    	for(i=1;i<MAX;i++)
    	{
    		avr=avr+t[i];
    		if(max<t[i])
    			(max=t[i]);
    		if(min>t[i])
    			(min=t[i]);
    	}
    	avr=avr/MAX;
    
    	clrscr();
    
    
    	for(i=0;i<MAX;i++)
    	{
    		if(t[i]<10){
    			textcolor(12);
    			}
    		else if(t[i]>12){
    			textcolor(10);
    			}
    		else textcolor(14);
    
    		printf("%-8.2lg%-b.2lg%-8.2lg\n\n", m[i],f[i],t[i]);
    	}
    
    	textcolor(15);
    
    	printf("\n\n\rMAX=%lg\n\r MIN=%lg\n\r AVR=%lg\n\r", max,min,avr);
    
    	return (0);
    
    }
