  int gd=DETECT,gm;
  initgraph(&gd,&gm,""); /* initialization of graphic mode */
  closegraph(); /* Restore orignal screen mode */

and this is the error message
mingw32-g++.exe   -c D:\algoritma\coba.cpp -o D:\algoritma\coba.o
D:\algoritma\coba.cpp: In function 'int main()':

1) use code tags ( the # symbol in the forum editor) if you post code or logs
2) i see no error, all seems to work as expected (except of the warning, but this has nothing to do with c::b). If the compiled program isn't doing what you want, then you should describe what it does and what it should do (but this would then be not related to c::b and for this, this forum would be the wrong place)
