    Something like this?

    PHP Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <windows.h>

    int main()
    {

        while ( 
    EOF )
        {

            
    POINT Cursor_Pos;

            
    GetCursorPos ( & Cursor_Pos );

            
    std :: cout << "\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b" << Cursor_Pos.<< "   " << Cursor_Pos.<< "   ";

            
    Sleep 10 );
        }

    What OS, and where is your code?

    Whatever, assumed Windows as above.

    Code:
    	while(true)
    	{
    
    		POINT Cursor_Pos;
    
    		GetCursorPos ( & Cursor_Pos );
    
    		std::cout << "\r" << Cursor_Pos.x << "\t" << Cursor_Pos.y;
    
    		Sleep( 10 );
    	}

    To Tonto:
    The displayed output with the carriage return character and the tab character will be incorrect,
    you will see something like: 0 06411.

    You will need another tab character at the end to overwrite the remain characters.

    What remaining characters? A CR just goes to the beginning of the line.

      POINT pt;                  // cursor location  
      cout << "Hello World this is  mouse test!" << endl;
      cout << "Moving to first Position" << endl;
      while ( x < 150 ) {
      GetCursorPos(&pt);
      sprintf( str1,"%d x %d",pt.x,pt.y );
      cout << str1;
      system ("cls");
      x++;
      }
      cout << "Press ENTER to continue..." << endl; 
      cin.get();

    Ok heres the code i got it from the dev examples so its not completely noobish

    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    
    /*  Declare Windows procedure  */
    LRESULT CALLBACK WindowProcedure (HWND, UINT, WPARAM, LPARAM);
    
    /*  Make the class name into a global variable  */
    char szClassName[ ] = "WindowsApp";
    
    int WINAPI WinMain (HINSTANCE hThisInstance,
                        HINSTANCE hPrevInstance,
                        LPSTR lpszArgument,
                        int nFunsterStil)
    
    {
        HWND hwnd;               /* This is the handle for our window */
        MSG messages;            /* Here messages to the application are saved */
        WNDCLASSEX wincl;        /* Data structure for the windowclass */
    
        /* The Window structure */
        wincl.hInstance = hThisInstance;
        wincl.lpszClassName = szClassName;
        wincl.lpfnWndProc = WindowProcedure;      /* This function is called by windows */
        wincl.style = CS_DBLCLKS;                 /* Catch double-clicks */
        wincl.cbSize = sizeof (WNDCLASSEX);
    
        /* Use default icon and mouse-pointer */
        wincl.hIcon = LoadIcon (NULL, IDI_APPLICATION);
        wincl.hIconSm = LoadIcon (NULL, IDI_APPLICATION);
        wincl.hCursor = LoadCursor (NULL, IDC_ARROW);
        wincl.lpszMenuName = NULL;                 /* No menu */
        wincl.cbClsExtra = 0;                      /* No extra bytes after the window class */
        wincl.cbWndExtra = 0;                      /* structure or the window instance */

        /* Register the window class, and if it fails quit the program */
        if (!RegisterClassEx (&wincl))
            return 0;
