just a quick clear screen question...
i just have a quick ANSI C question. I use MS visual C++ for my C and C++ programs, and i'm wondering if there is any ANSI function (or MS compler) functions to clear a console app screen or to place text in the console app where you would like it in the window (i know back in High school when we used the borland compiler conio.h had a gotoxy function or something like that for putting text where you wanted it)
If there is any way in MS compilers or ANSI C to do one or both of these tasks, Please let me know, because it would be a very nice effect in my program in currently working on (instead of just scrolling the text infinitely down in the console app window- which is kinda lame).
If there is a function for it, let me know what header file it is in so i can include it.
kewl, thanx ken-- you da man!
thanx, I will try that out when i'm off of work and back at my home computer with my compiler.
Just want to make sure though, is that a function available in ANSI C, or is it compiler-specific, cause for the program i am writing it must be ANSI supported (can't be dependant on the Compiler.
Now i'm guessing there is no ANSI way to place text on the screen in a certain x,y location in a Console app is there (probably just in a normal win APP - right??)
anyway, regardless of whether you got the chance to help me out further, i'll definately try it out when i get home again, and thanx again for the help.
