    Moving the output.

    Currently, I am working on a project that involves putting the output to the very far right of the MSDOS box. Does anyone know any way that I can achieve this.

    Thanks

    If it's for Windows command prompt, much of the code here: Help editing console output
    will probably help you.

    If it's actually for DOS, then you would have to do something different (depends on which compiler what you actually end up doing).

    Print spaces. If you have a line of length N, and a console of width W, and you want to right-justify the line, then print W-1-N spaces then print the line.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    I just want some sample code.

    Eg.

    cout << "blah blah";

    cout << setw(75) << right << "Text on the right";

    something like that, you mean?

    You can't take six nanoseconds to understand what "print some spaces" entails?

    matsp's solution is more C++-ish anyway
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}
