In earlier versions of c++, there was a function gotoxy() which could take me anywhere in the screen. Its available with borland compilers now too but not with visual c++ express. Is there any substitute for that.

gotoxy() was NEVER EVER a standard c or c++ function, but it was a Borland-specific function that started with Turbo C. No other compiler that I know of implemented that function.

See this to implement the function yourself

Thank you! Is there a something for window() function too.

thanx to all, i think i have got everything i wanted.
