    I would suggest that if you're looking at graphics.h, you have other problems to solve first - namely one of using a 20+ year old fossil compiler for an OS which has been dead for nearly as long.

    So the first steps really are to
    - get a compiler which is compatible with your actual operating system (tell us what you're using)
    - learn some modern C++ using some appropriate books and online resources.

    When you've done a few months of that, then we can talk about choosing graphics libraries and so forth.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
