DOS Graphics libraries

Recommended Posts

I am looking for some good DOS graphics library for C++. I heard about ALlegro, is it any good? And can i use it even with C++ and MS Visual C++ 6? Do you know any other DOS library?

MSVC cannot compile for dos. It can compile for console, but that''s not the same as dos. You would have to use a dos compiler, like djgpp (32-bit), or one of the older borland compilers (i beleive all were 16-bit), the old Watcom compilers (32-bit). You can either use Allegro, or another library, or write your own graphics, I always preferred using my own, because it didn''t have as much over-head (didn''t have to be so generic).
