Hi, I tried to compile below program with Borland C++ 5.0 program but i received subject error.
Below is not complete program as it is long program.
I think "graphics.h" has some problem. Please help me.

#include<iostream.h>
#include<graphics.h>
#include<stdio.h>
#include<conio.h>
#include<string.h>
#include<dos.h>
#include<iomanip.h>

struct date_rec
{
short int dd;
short int mm;
int yyyy;
}due_date,current_date;

#include<iostream.h>
#include<graphics.h>
#include<stdio.h>
#include<conio.h>
#include<string.h>
#include<dos.h>
#include<iomanip.h>

Thanks,
Ahmed
