Hi all.
I need the name of libraries that support the following screen control: Creating text output, Transferring images, Displaying fonts, Displaying presentation graphics, Presantation charts, Manipulating presentation graphics structures, Configuring mode and environment, Setting Coordinates, Setting low level graphics, Setting Attributes, Creating Graphics outpu.
_______________________________________

These screen control libraries used to be accessible when I used microsoft compiler 1.5  Now I have visual 6.0 and I cant find these functuions. Yes I can see them but all of them belong to some visual class. I need name of libraries that support this without need to call for windows winmain() which requires handle to windows. Is there anything left alive from functions like getviewcoord, setwindow, setpixel, or settextposition without the need of belonging to some visual class.


Thanks for any tips.

I looked at these libraries and got a pdf on Glut intro. Man, this will take some time until I will put it together.
