Positioning the Cursor

Question:
In qbasic there is a command called LOCATE. What it does is locate where you want your output on the screen, eg: locate 1,1: meaning one down and one acorss. Is there a command like that in C++, and what is it?

Answer:
Standard C++ doesn't support graphics directly. You have to use a library function for this purpose. The exact function depends on the platform and graphics library you're using. For eaxmple, DOS declares the function

void gotoxy(int x, int y);
in the header . The function moves the curosr to the specified position in the current text window.
