    Talking problem

    Hi,
    Recently I had downloaded Borland's 5.5 compiler .
    But my graphics programms written in c++ or c are not
    running.It is showing that 'graphics.h' file not found.I have
    checked include directory in this compiler software where all
    header files are located but graphics.h file is not there. Does
    borland 5.5 compiler does not support graphics programming.
    please clear to me!

    Apparently it doesn't support the graphics API that you're used to. Sorry.

    Different compilers have different ways of creating graphics (if they support such a thing at all). The alternative is to either use the Win32 API, or a third party graphics library such as OpenGL or DirectX. IIRC, graphics.h is only for DOS applications and won't work in Windows.

    Since this forum is about C, and C doesn't understand graphics, perhaps your question could be better answered in the Windows Programming forum.

    I ignored it in favor of answering the question.
