    Making it fancier

    Hi,

    Ive just written a short programme that works out the roots of a quadratic equation.


    I want to know how i would make this a bit more interesting to look at instead of just a DOS box.

    any ideas would be great.

    Well you can always look into windows or other os specific programming, but in my opinion it would be better to just keep making new programs

    thanks.

    In the dev c++5 , it gives you the choice to start a windows application, with some code given, can i put my c++ code in here so as to display it in a windows box ?

    You can, but you'd still have to look into Windows programming to be able to get input from the user and draw output on the window, stdout and stdin won't work there. I think Dev comes with the GTK library for GUI development, you might want to look into that.

    forget that.

    would take me years to get through all that. c++ is hard enough.

    it wouldn't take you years, but you need to understand C++ first. Just keep studying, and it will come to you.
    Away.

    I agree. C++ isn't too hard. And I'm only 13
