I have MS Visual C++ 5.0 and I'm trying draw pixels, lines, etc... on the screen.  Of course I want this to be as fast as possible so I would need to access the memory directly.  Right?  Are there any libraries I can use to achieve this that are compatable with my program?

Please check the help of CDC. It is used for draw all the staff
on the screen. There are many member functions of CDC can be
used to draw line, polygon, pixel, arc, etc. such as LineTo(),
ArcTo(), etc.

Forget direct memory access.  Vissual C++ 5 only produces 32 bit programs.  32 bit programs run in protected mode and cannot direcly access memory (video, or otherwise).

However, if you need really fast graphics, you can use the direct draw library.  Also documented in the Visual C++ help.  It is much much faster adn more powerful that the windows GDI graphics

Thanks a lot!  

It looks like I'll actually be able to make some programs now!  CDC has way more than I ever expected.  It would have taken me a long time to find it.

Thank you again, and nice responce time too!
