    - goto statements
    Don't use them. They're OK in special cases, but in a program of this size, they're not needed.

    - toe variable
    You can tidy your declaration of this variable like so:
    >toe[]={'1','2','3','4', etc

    - cout << "\033[2J";
    That didn't work properly on my system. There must be a safer equivalent.

    - cout<<toe[6]<<" | "<<toe[7]<<" | "<<toe[8]<<endl<<endl<<endl<<endl<<endl<<endl<<endl<<endl<< endl<<endl;
    Maybe a loop would look better?

    Code:
    if (toe[0]==b && toe[1]==b && toe[2]==b)
        w=1;
    if (toe[3]==b && toe[4]==b && toe[5]==b)
        w=1;
    Use "else if", that way once a match is found, the rest of the if stataments will be bypassed. This is a small and pointless efficiency change in a program of this size, but still good to know for future development.

    All in all, I've seen a lot worse tic-tac-toe programs, so it's a good start
    When all else fails, read the instructions.

    It's cool.

    The keys is your numpad keys... That figured out

    try to put the keys on the screen before you play the game

    possible bug : if you choose the 1'st block, it gives a strange character.

    Initliasing the toe variable...
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main(void)
    {
        char toe[] = {'1','2','3','4','5','6','7','8','9'};
        int i;
        
        for (i = 0; i < sizeof (toe); i++)
            printf ("%c\n", toe[i]);
            
        return 0;
    }
    or
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main(void)
    {
        char toe[9];
        int i;
        for (i = 0; i < sizeof (toe); i++)
            toe[i] = (char)(i + 1 + '0');
        
        for (i = 0; i < sizeof (toe); i++)
            printf ("%c\n", toe[i]);
            
        return 0;
    }

    I don't know why I'm crying. It just makes me happy when a newbie posts his game(didn't download it). I just wish atleast 50% of the world population would be programmers and not casual gamers who think graphics rule......
