    adding icon to a file that ISN'T win32

    How would i go about adding an icon to a program that DOESN'T use Win32? cuz i know in Win32 you just load the resource when you create the window, but DOS doesn't really have that type of support, so i was wondering if it's at all possible for a DOS console program to have an icon...............?

    I don't think that Consoles can have Icons at all.

    ok, nevermind, i guess visual C++ automatically puts the icon in there if you make one in the resource editor, you don't even need to include anything!! now that's pretty cool
