    scrolling text..

    ok ive tried a couple things but to no avail.
    my problem is, i wanna be able to input a string and make the program scroll it from left to right on the screen, in a defined length (for if i only wanna see 3 characters at a time or something)

    any ideas/pseudocode will be appreciated

    the only way I could think of right now is inputing whatever you want displayed in a cstring/array and then printing it in a for loop everytime putting a system pause after each letter....

    some entropy with that sink? entropysink.com
