    Yes, but you need your compiler's graphic routines or some other graphics library.

    Note that emulated OSes don't play well with user manipulated console stuff, so you could get undesired effects.
    I haven't used a compiler in ages, so please be gentle as I try to reacclimate myself. :P

    Any idea on how I could go about to do it?

    I'm using the Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0!!

    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
