    Displaying an int in graphics mode?

    Hi..thanks for taking time to at least have a look at my problem:

    My program is all in graphics mode - <graphics.h> from borland
    I want to output/display an "int" on the screen.
    For strings i make use of outtext or outtextxy, but how do you do that for an int?
    Can you help me please?
    Thanks for your generous help!

    Kind Regards!

    One way would be to convert your int into a string then.
    one of the printf() functions does that IIRC

    Yes, you'd want to use sprintf(). That's probably what glo was looking for

    but the problem is i'm using linked-list..and it's inevitable to use int...
    i thought there would be something similar like outtext,,i have searched for it..but in vain..
    is there any special libraries on the net for it? If you came across it?

    You can keep your int, just make sure when you want to print it using your string receiving function, convert the int into a string, then call your function with that string.
    Practically, all you need is to declare a char array[7], so its not a matter of inevitability.
