I am developing this game of snake, just like the nokia phones have. anyway i have worked on windows till now, but now i am using geany on linux. so there are quite some methods which are not standardised for all platforms. one of them is gotoxy() and i have found that there is ncurses() instead on linux. but i dont know the syntax. if anyone out there knows please help me, or if there is some other method to mess with the coordinates of the screen.
