    printf() and gotoxy() will do the ASCII graphics for you. If you need more complex keyboard input routine than getch() or you need to use mouse look for gamedev.net for libraries.
    Making error is human, but for messing things thoroughly it takes a computer

    Code:
    for(char i=0; i<255; ++i)  printf("%d: %c  ", i, i);
    This prints you all the ASCII characters and the numbers representing them. So printing an ASCII character really goes

    printf("%c", 64); // this prints 'A'

    Wrong! printf("%c", 65); prints 'A'.
    Current projects:
    1) User Interface Development Kit (C++)
    2) HTML SDK (C++)
    3) Classes (C++)
    4) INI Editor (Delphi)
