    Making a text editor

    I've been able to open a file and print it to the screen(DOS) but I need help. Anyone know of how to create a text out put capable of scrolling up/down?

    you'd have to do that manually by having portions of the text redisplay, and having the user control which portion. or, you can do the poorman's version and just have it stop after every, oh i dont know, 24 new lines...

    oh and nice sig, i know where that's from... i hated that whole side of the album except for aneurysm... hth!

    wait, a new idea just occured to me. anyone know if it would be hard to store each line of text into a specified array, afterwards, have it display line[x] to line[x+24]???? It sounds like it might work!!!!!!!!! GAR GAR!!

    yeah you could do that, you'd need a two-dimension array [or ptr to ptr list, multiple indirection]... that would be a convenient way of reorganizing it so that displaying is easier, however it is a tradeoff since you have added processing time while you are loading the data correctly... you decide...

    and i liked molly's lips... and turnaround is pretty satirical and fun... but on the no alternative compilation i love verse chorus verse... and, duh, about a girl, both the one on bleach and unplugged... on right!
