    I m writing c code for full duplex communication between two PCs where two PCs will be communicating simultaneously with each other.
    What i want is - O/P window should be splitted into two parts- first part will display whatever current user typing(transmitting) while the other part will display data he is receiving from second PC/USER.
    I m done with full duplex part of the code but how to split o/p window into two halves or invoke two output windows or display messages in two distinct parts of same window.
    I m discussing this problem wrt turbo c3 IDE.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    There is no real trivial way to do this in any environment. You would have to do your own management of the screen content.

    Of course, using a 15+ year old compiler is not going to help - perhaps you may want to consider using a more modern one, and then you would have nice tools such as wxWidgets or curses that you could use for the screen management.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
    Please don't PM me for help - and no, I don't do help over instant messengers.
