I am aware that this is something that has been asked repeatedly, and that conio is outdated, it is completely non-standard, but I need do use BGI graphics(in Turbo C++ 3) for my school project and for that along with BGI I need conio too..
I convinced my teacher to let me use CodeBlocks/MinGW, but the graphics is the part that's giving problems.
I've got 3 days left and desperately need to get it working ..
Porting the entire code to Turbo C++ from codeblocks is not an option :(
I'm using WinBGIm with codeblocks, and it seems to work well..
However, some of the code requires functions like textcolor(), cprintf(),etc that require conio.h..
I've tried the conio libraries from here : http://conio.sourceforge.net/ and http://www14.brinkster.com/aditsu/console/ (copied the requisite files to the include folder, the lib folder, and added the linker parameters), but I get this error regarding the new conio.h
error: conflicting declaration 'BLACK' error: 'BLACK' has a previous declaration as `colors BLACK' error: declaration of 'BLACK' error: conflicts with previous declaration `colors BLACK'
and so on for all colours
'More errors follow but not being shown'
Am I missing something?
