    Question x y coordinates?

    how would i go about writing a function to enable output

    to the screen at an absolute point

    e.g. along X value, up (or down) Y value

    goto here and cout<"text\n";

    Use the function
    gotoxy(x,y)
    cout << "Text Deplays Here" << endl;

    where x and y are insert values.
    a computer will be much different than a normal graph, because the far left hand corner of your screen represents 0,0 so you will have to play around with the values to get it centered.
