I'm getting pretty bored with the straight-forward database work we're learning in school. I've got very solid understanding of intermediate C++ concepts, but we have yet to implement any graphics! When I was a lot younger I mastered QBasic (which isn't much of a feat) so I should have a good grasp on output mapping and other such technicalities. I'm asking that someone please point me in the right direction for implementing graphics into console based applications. (ie. a commonly used library with some basic commands). I'll continue my research elsewhere but this place seems like a good place to start, since all I'm really in search of is proper syntax :P .
