    questions / advice

    With C ....or C++ is there a ( as simple as possible ) way to display a picture in dos? Do you need special runtime libraries that are compatible with C / C++ ? Also what kind of things would assembly be useful for learning?

    resources i have ( all with included libraries ):
    micrsoft visual c++
    turbo C++ 1.01

    ..and a few others i believe

    I believe you need a good compiler for the type of code you wish to write in, then you need the proper runtime libraries to assist you, correct?
    The world is waiting. I must leave you now.

    It is quite easy to display Windows Bitmaps (BMP) in DOS. I think this is outlined in the FAQ, which you should read if you haven't. Here is some code which might help (attached). You will have to use a 320x200 256 colour non-compressed BMP with this (which you can create with mspaint).
    The box said 'Windows NT or better', so I installed Linux.
