I am just playing with C code in the console under Linux.
In the old times a fair bit of code was written for a console;
programs were operating in text mode, creating menues was quite a fun.
I coded very simple c routine to print a strings of characters on
the console but the characters, each is in its own single box and the whole
set of strings is in a large complette box.
I thought it could be intersting for someone to use it as an excersise.
This is nothing complex as for the 'C' code. :-)
I am using Code Blocks IDE for editing (under Ubuntu 12.04) and GNU GCC
You should be able to just copy/paste this snippet and compile it on any OS.
