In DOS you can use the graphics.h header which I remember has a putpixel function. You'll need to initialize graphics first.

graphics.h isn't a standard header, so that may not be portable. If you're in real DOS mode you could allways look up "mode 13h" and other direct SVGA programming :-).

For pixel pushing, I'd recomend the SDL (http://libsdl.org/)
