    gotoxy is not a standard C function, therefore you'll need other libraries for that, for example OS specific API's. The FAQ contains an example how this could be done in a Windows program.
    I might be wrong.

    Thank you, anon. You sure know how to recognize different types of trees from quite a long way away.

    Filipino professors are really dumb cause they always asks us to use non C standard functions

    Anyhow use this function as an alternative
    void gotoxy(int x, int y)
      COORD coord;
      coord.X = x;
      coord.Y = y;
      SetConsoleCursorPosition(GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE), coord);
