    No directx, no opengl?

    Then assembly is probably the answer to your question. I'd say pick up a generic book on graphics (like anything on computer graphics) and start implementing the stuff with assembly.
    It kind of sounds like you want to reinvent the wheel and I just don't get it.
    Good Luck.

    I've heard the SDL is pretty easy to learn, but I've not tried it myself (the Windows version is a wrapper for GDI and DirectDraw functions).

    I don't know but if you have a look at their FAQ it looks as if people have had sucess with other compilers.

    what about it doesn't work?
    compiler errors?
    runtime errors?

    anyways GDI,assembly, and BGI are about all thats left then...
