DOS Graphics vs. Windows

Question:
Is there a header file in Visual C++ v4 (sorry a bit behind :)) that replaces the old graph.h? I am writing console apps for school and would like to change text colors, blink, mover cursor around etc. Thanks in advance.

Answer:
If you are referring to the old DOS graphics declarations, they are of no use in Windows. Programs manipulate graphics under Windows using the Windows API. There are also many routines in the Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC) that wrap the Windows API graphics routines, making it a little easier.
