    how do i put my program inside a box or border


    i am a complete novice programmer

    now i want to give my c program a nice look

    to do so i made a program like this

    #include <stdio.h>
        int i=1;
    ||                                                                          ||\n");
        return 0;
    dont laugh this prints a box like this

    . but the problem is if i try to write something inside it the border collapses so i have to re arrange the order. now i have seen some c programs that actually has a border now how do i do that. i mean i there a logic to do so. please give answer in c language only. thanks in advance.

    Normal console I/O treats everything as a stream.

    If you want detailed control, you need to start using functions specific to your OS. Which allow for example to treat your screen as an addressable grid.
    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.
