    home cursor

    Am working on first C++ program. Running DOS and
    using GNU C++ compiler with conio.h - can clear the screen but unable to home the cursor or color the text. Have read all the FAQs that I can find,
    purchased C++ for dummies (am newbie), and have browsed the net in hopes of finding a program with the correct syntax. Appologize for what must be the 'same old question' but would appreciate a small boost up the learning curve.

    regards,
    Bill
