    Talking Need ref for some C++ stuff...


    I have been learning basic C++ mainly dealing in data structures, excl templates.

    I am now trying to import pictures or edit text into colour into my output (onscreen) and havent got a clue how to start.

    Can anyone provide me with links to online tutorials etc or what ref bks i should be looking at.

    Tks a mill!

    look at the FAQ.

    Else, include conio.c and use textcolor (arg) (arg must be between 0-255)

    Windows API is good too, uses same values as textcolor.

    edit : windows CONSOLE API.
    Also does cursorlocation, things like that.

    Yes, I agree, move to Windows Programming. Start here:
