    Code:
    
    int Counter=0;
    while(!kbhit())
    {
      gotoxy(1,1);
      switch(Counter)
      {
        case 0:
          printf("|");
          Counter++;
        break;
        case 1:
          printf("/");
          Counter++;
        break;
        case 2:
          printf("-");
          Counter++;
        break;
        case 3:
          printf("\\");
          Counter++;
        break;
        default:
          Counter=0;
      }
    }
    
    You may want to slow it down a bit though . Notice the printf("\\"); where you have to use two \, not one. One \ is used to give special commands to strings like new line ( \n ), tab ( \t ) and so on.
