no, it's a DOS extension from Borland. I've no clue about what the Microsoft equivalent was, would be part of Microsoft C 1.5 or so.

dont think ms has one as ms tends to push the use of Win32 GUI for graphics... oh, hang on, yes there is a glaringly obvious one. Direct X. You will need to download the runtime libraries from somewhere though :(

look just give me a example, for example a basic program which will use the graphic.h

That's not what you asked initially. I'm sure had you asked that, someone would have done that by now.

does anyone know why grapfic.h does't work on microsoft c++

look just give me a example, for example a basic program which will use the graphic.h

do you want an example of a c++ graphics program? (ie NOT graphics.h...)

There are a ton of graphics functions in the Windows API. DirectX and openGL add more stuff! Got to leave those Flinstonian times behind. It's learning time!!!

I have googled, have you?

You wont get very far copyn and pastn the code though!! you will need to learn the OpenGL library to gain any sense of it :)
