Size of text

This is a discussion on Size of text within the C++ Programming forums, part of the General Programming Boards category; I'll leave that for the OP. Right now I'm more interested on making PDCurses working for me...

    I found this on a web site, would this be the code that i could use?

    Code:
    setcolor(YELLOW); 
    settextstyle(DEFAULT_FONT, HORIZ_DIR, 2); // 2 = size 
    outtextxy(20, 320, "Press any key ... "); 
    getch();
    Code:
    // do some graphics using the WinBgi package from:
    // http://csci.biola.edu/csci105/using_winbgi.html
    //
    // for Dev-C++ you need to fix graphics2.h and WinBgi2.cpp
    // do change  unsigned int getpixel() to  int getpixel()
    // 
    // have WinBgi2.cpp in the working folder and add to project
    // have graphics2.h in the working folder
    // link with libgdi32.a
    // this Dev-C++ project is a Console Application
     
    #include <cstdio>
    #include <cmath>
    #include "graphics2.h"
     
    using namespace std;
     
    int main()
    {
     	int GraphDriver = 0, GraphMode = 0;
     	// create graph window frame
    	initgraph(&GraphDriver, &GraphMode, "", 640, 480); 
     
    	// first draw two ellipses and a line ...
      setcolor(CYAN);
    	setlinestyle(SOLID_LINE, 0, 2);  // 2 pixels wide
    	//** ellipse(int x,int y,int sa,int ea,int rx,int ry)
      //**   center = x, y 
      //**   sa = start of arc  (0 to 360 degrees)
      //**   ea = end of arc
      //**   rx = length of horizontal axis (radius)
      //**   ry = length of vertical axis (radius)
    	ellipse(320, 150, 0, 360, 150, 20);
    	
    	setcolor(LIGHTGREEN);
    	setlinestyle(SOLID_LINE, 0, 3);  // 3 pixels wide
    	ellipse(320, 150, 0, 360, 40, 90);
    	
    	setcolor(LIGHTRED);
    	setlinestyle(SOLID_LINE, 0, 2);
                 // line(int x1, int y1, int x2, int y2)
    	line(20, 300, 600, 300);
    	
    	setcolor(YELLOW);
    	settextstyle(DEFAULT_FONT, HORIZ_DIR, 2);
    	outtextxy(20, 320, "Press any key ... ");
    	getch();  // wait
     
    	// now draw some fancy lines ...
      int x, y;
    	int spokes = 6;  // triangle = 3,  more complex > 3
    	double radians;
      	
    	setcolor(GREEN);
    	radians = 360 / (spokes * 57.29578);
    	for (x = 1; x <= spokes; x++) 
      {
    		for (y = x; y <= spokes; y++) 
        {
    			line((int)(sin(y * radians) * 225 + 320),(int)(cos(y * radians) * 145 + 150),
    		  (int)(sin(x * radians) * 225 + 320),(int)(cos(x * radians) * 145 + 150));
    		}
    	}
    	outtextxy(20,320,"Press any key ... ");
    	getch();  // wait
    	
    	closegraph();
    	
      return 0;
    }

    Does it have graphics2.h too? (I'm interested Thanks for posting!)

    Em, what site did you get it from (we need graphics2.h to work it ... ), or paste the header there too

    Nice arrow! Sometimes I need it for not seeing the obvious. It would have been better had you bolded it though I may have missed it again!

    // link with libgdi32.a
    Might be the cause of the problem...
    No No's:
    fflush (stdin); gets (); void main ();


    Goodies:
    Example of fgets (); The FAQ, C/C++ Reference

    You need to link with the lib file provided.

    Check the documentation. It will probably be called something like libbgi.a. It should be in your compiler's lib directory. The linker should have this library included.

    Edit: Richie got me

    Ah... then you don't want to use that one. You have http://www.codecutter.net/tools/winbgim/ that was built specificaly for MingW.

    follow the instructions in the readme file
