~ Help with graphics ~
« on: March 23, 2014, 11:45:49 am »
 ??? I am new to C++ and wish to learn basic graphics.

Please Help

1. Where are the header files located ? ( folder ? )
2. Is there a way to include graphics.h ? ( where can I DL the file and how do I install to use it ? )

Thank U all.

Question:

How may I Build & Run the following code. Error message posted above code. "Animated Circles In C++"

You're using the wrong book to teach you graphics! The dos days are over, so you should find a better book/tutorial.

You can try to search for tutorials about SDL, OpenGL, DirectX or something similar to do graphics with.

I hope to be able to set up Code::BLOCK to use <graphics.h> then as I progress I can explore the other Technics.

May I get the instructions to just be able to set up Code::Block to recognize <graphics.h> for now thanks. :)

Sorry can't be done... Please come to 21st century... DOS is something from the past leave it there.

Also PMing people is considered rude, do it one more time and I'll make sure you get banned!
