I've heard the curses library can be useful when trying to implement the handy DOS-only tools of gotoxy() and clrscr() using move() and initscr(). Though, there is a way to write your own gotoxy() in the Linux environment. This topic isn't touched often, so I would like to change that. I'll also show an example of how to use clrscr(), but it isn't our main focus.

Hello, I am experiencing a slight problem managing user accounts in Windows XP Home Edition. When running in an existing account, non-administrative, I run into an IE script error and am unable to view the User Accounts dialog found under Control Panel. I am unable to run as Administrator unless I boot in Safe-Mode. I can access the User Accounts page without a problem while running as Administrator, though I wanted to change the Restricted Users to Power Users. To accomplish that, I ran a Command Prompt and went to the second User Account interface: "control userpasswords2" Once there, I …

[b]eFax Messenger Plus — What Really Happened?[/b] To be honest, I don't know what really happened to the software. I recently discovered that [url=www.efax.com]eFax[/url] no longer supports the eFax Messenger Plus software and that it has ceased to be made available to the consumer from both eFax and [url=www.j2global.com]j2 Global Communications[/url] with no mention of why. For those of us that enjoyed the wide range of features found in the Plus version, like the automatic TIF extension registration and the handy Live Menu plug-in—that would be available in software packages like Microsoft Word, Excel and Notepad to make converting documents …

Yes, This is possible, and I have a working prototype that is simple to use. Though, before I display it I wanted to publicly ask the board where I should really post this. The "Windows" nor the "Software" section seemed suited for this topic, so I turned to the last resort "Hardware". I know for months, even years, people say its possible. Though, I am proud to present one of the candidates that believe. I have seen it work, even on an old HP Laptop. That's why I'm here, waiting to share my knowledge and experience. All I ask is …

Hello, I am trying to determine the best possible solution to accomplish a simple, yet complex task. ([i]Regarding: Socket Programming[/i]) I've been working on a new project for quite some time and have written a custom framework from the ground up. It's more or less a ([b]Client --> Server --> Server <-- Client[/b]) system. So far I have the basics done. Here's the process: [list=1][*]I expect to have one client connect to my listening server. [*]That client will periodically send me a string of IP Addresses ([i]10 or more at a time[/i]). [*]When I receive the data, I split it …

Hello fellow programmers, This is a tutorial about using pointers in the C environment. Please, don’t hit the back button; pointers aren’t as hard as you think. In fact without pointers, most of us would be lost in our latter programming years. Even though pointers are for the experienced, as they say, I’m here to help programmers from consisting of all levels to help greater understand pointers, and why they are pertinent to your everyday programming needs. Let me start off by stating, a pointer is a variable that contains the address of another variable. Pointers and arrays are closely …
