    /* request auto detection */
       int gdriver =DETECT,gmode,errorcode;
    int xmax,ymax;
    /* intialize grafics and local variables */
    /* read result of initialization*/
    errorcode = graphresult();
    /* if an error ocurred */
    if (errorcode !=gr0k)
    printf("Grephics error:%s \n",grapherrormsg(errorcode));
    printf("press any key to halt:");
    xmax= getmaxx();
    ymax = getmaxy();
    /*draw diagonal line*/
    line (0,xmax,ymax);
    /*clean up*/
    return 0;

    It's very old Borland code.
    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    Or maybe just use the dev-c++ package manager to download LibSDL (see and start using more capable graphics and leave that old fossil where it belongs, in the history museum.

    Indeed. "very old' isn't an exaggeration. The Borland Graphics Interface that this code reeks of was around in at least 1987, if not earlier. It became obsolete when MS-DOS did.
