    C++ graphics on g++ compiler

    Hi,
    The g++ compiler gives the error "No such file or directory" for "include<graphics.h>". I haven't programmed using the g++ compiler before. Please tell me how to write C++ graphics programs for the g++ compiler. Also, while using turboc we specify

    initgraph(&gd, &gm, "c:\\turboc3\\bgi " );

    What is the g++ equivalent of this?

    thanks
    raj

    It's not part of any standard, and GNU GCC does not provide it. It's some old legacy header used by the Borland compilers for creating DOS programs.

    There are many ports of gcc to windows, which one are you using?

    If it's dev-c++, then simply get the "libsdl" package, then visit www.libsdl.org for FAQs and tutorials.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
