    Question graphics

    I am a beginner in programming with c++.
    I tried to initialize graphics but it isn't working.
    I used initgraph and the compiler returned an error

    #include <graphics.h>
    #include <iostream.h>

    int main()
    {
    int gdriver=DETECT, gmode=0;
    initgraph (&gdriver, &gmode,"");
    return 0;
    }

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    undefined simbol initgraph in module -path to the cpp file

    I haven't done a whole lot of graphics in C++ and so this may not be the solution, but passing the addresses of variables (&) as parameters in a function just doesn't look right to me.

    the ( "" ) is the place/path of your graphic files. Yours should be I think in TC\BGI

    Like in most cases it is C:\TC\BGI, so you can put : "C:\\TC\\BGI"

    or else you could copy all the BGI files into your BIN directory and let it reamin as ""

    Thumbs down graphics

    I tried with the path in ("") -> initgraph(driver,mode, "PATH")
    but the error is still the same.

    Make sure you are using Borland Turbo C++ 3.1
