    graphics in C with MingW on windows 7

    I am a beginner, using Windows 7 and MingW for compiling c programs that I write.. I wish to learn how to draw lines, arc, circles (graphics) in C - programming. the book I am referring to uses graphics.h and graphics.lib of turboC. But I have mingW. how do I get the header and library files for MingW?

    thanks in Advance

    You don't, TurboC is an ancient compiler that doesn't conform to any standards. Look into either DirectX, OpenGL or SDL.
