    graphics programming in windows - pls help

    look at the follwing code .

    Code:
    #include <graphics.h>
    
    main ()
    {
           int gd=DETECT,gm;
           
          initgraph(&gd,&gm,"c:\\tc\\bgi"); // remember there is no bgi       
                                                              // files in borland c++ 5.5
          
          setcolor ( RED);
          line ( 25,25,100,25);
          
          closegraph();
          restorecrtmode();
    }

    can any body suggest how to compile this code in windows based compilers such as borland c++ builder, dev-c++ etc .

    thanks.

    yeah, forget it.
    That's old 16-bit, low resolution blah blah blah code.

    In dev-c++, find the devpack which downloads libsdl
    Then goto http://www.libsdl.org/index.php and read the tutorials, download the samples and learn a graphics API for this millenium.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    For advanced graphics, go for OpenGL..to use opengl in dev-cpp, here is a tutorial ZeusCMD OpenGL Tutorial..
