    Question gotoxy function call

    Hi, sorry if this is such a simple question it seems trivial to you guys but I'm just learning C++ so here goes.

    I know there is a gotoxy function call for setting text output to a specific text slot on the monitor, but I can't find the include library with the function declaration. I'm running Visual C++ 6.0 and so far I've no had much luck compiling

    void main()
    {
    gotoxy(5,5);
    cout << 'a' << endl;
    getch();
    }

    ('gotoxy' : undeclared identifier) <--: error message

    Any help with how to solve this issue would be most appreciated.

    Thanks,
    artalin

    visual c++ 6 doesnt have a gotoxy() function but it is easy enough to write one. Read the FAQ to see how to do this.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi

    Rather than just giving you a fish because you're hungry, I'm going to teach you how to fish

    go to Start->Find->Files or Folders

    click "Browse" and navigate to your compiler's "Include" folder, and click "OK".

    Now type in the box labeled "containing text":

    gotoxy

    Click "Find Now".
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool flip(bool value)
    {
           return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)*(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }
