    Of course it doesnt. The actual content will be found in a LIB. The code isnt public domain.

    Either way, I get an "implicit definition" error or something like that when I try to use it like this:

    if (kbhit())
    break;

    I just thought it hadn't been defined

    I know how to use kbhit, but I can't. I still think its my conio.h header file. I looked into it and there are all kinds of comments like
    /* Don't understand this part */
    or
    //not finished yet
    if its not too big, maybe one of you could attach your copy

    I just formatted and havent installed .NET yet, what compiler are you using? I think on non-VC++ compilers it might be something like _kbhit or something...

    /* Don't understand this part */
    or
    //not finished yet
    That doesn't inspire much hope.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Never mind now, I got a different version of Dev C++ that had a more *professional* conio.h and it worked. Thanks anyway
