    How can you extract what text is onscreen???

    I actually have a few problems..

    I use C++, bloodshed (www.bloodshed.net), free stuff.

    I used to use Borland turbo C, but it is so outdated now.

    1)
    I would like to know how to (when your program runs) make the screen maximise instead of just going to a window???

    2) I need to know how to specify the text screen resolution. for example, I want to set it to 80x25 but when I run my program it defaults to some other font style and size etc.

    3) I want to input x/y coordinates and get information about what is onscreen at that point. ie char, textcolour, background colour etc.

    anyone know??

    look up the AllocConsole and related APIs for win32 (check at http://msdn.microsoft.com)
