I don''t beleive you can use Win32 API functions in a non-Win32 app, which is what a console is. But I could be wrong...

Only if you want to mess with the display and go into a graphics mode can you draw lines effectively (I''m not even sure Windows lets you do this?)

Alternatively, you could use lots of dashes.
