conio.h for unix?

I was wondering, is there a library similar to the dos conio.h for unix?  I find myself needing some functions such as gotoxy, etc.

You should look at functionalities provided by Curses:

curses.h (look in /usr/include)

Also 'man courses' should help.

Curses typically runs on top of 'termcap'. Have a look at that
instead; but IMHO there was no good reason to reject Julio's
answer, because curses is the way to go (if you want portability
and ease of use) ...

kind regards,

MAY BE YOU CAN USE THIS... (mnemonics)

void gotoxy(int int_Col, int int_Ren)
  {
   int int_e = 0,
        int_i = 0,
        int_ee = 0,
        int_ii = 0;
   /*  LIKE itoa() */
   char str_b[4]="\0";
   char str_c[4]="\0";
   char str_Escape[] = "\033[";
   int_e = int_Col /100;
    int_Col = int_Col % 100;
 
   if(int_e != 0){
                    str_c[int_i++] = int_e +48;
                     }

   int_e = int_Col /10; int_Col = int_Col % 10;

   if(int_e != 0){
                      str_c[int_i++] = int_e +48;
                      }

   str_c[int_i] = int_Col + 48;
   int_i = 0;

   int_ee = int_Ren /100;
   int_Ren = int_Ren % 100;

   if(int_ee != 0){
                       str_b[int_ii++] = int_ee + 48;
                        }

   int_ee = int_Ren /10; int_Ren = int_Ren % 10;

   if (int_ee != 0){
                         str_b[int_ii++] = int_ee + 48;
                         }
   str_b[int_ii] = int_Ren + 48;
   int_ii = 0;
 
   strcat(str_Escape,str_b);
   strcat(str_Escape,";");
   strcat(str_Escape,str_c);
   strcat(str_Escape,"f");
   printf(str_Escape); /* "\033<col>;<row>r" */
   
   } /* end funcion gotoxy() */

/* CLEAR SCREEN */  
void clrscr() { printf("\033[2J"); }
