    The question would be, what compiler are you using. This is not part of the IEC/ISO C++ standard definition as far as I know.

    if you have it... them it normally resides in <conio.h>

    if you dont have it..... i.e. msvc.... you can write it yourself.

    Code:
    #include<windows.h>
    
    void gotoxy(int x, int y) 
    { 
        COORD point; 
        point.X = x; point.Y = y; 
        SetConsoleCursorPosition(GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE),point); 
    }
    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

    Yeah, it's in Conio.h, which isn't on most compilers. I tried using it's textcolor function once, but I realized that header wasn't there, so I gave up. It's probably posted somewhere on the internet though...
    Think out of the box! Open Source rules!
