#define VIDEO 0x10

main()
{
         union REGS regs;
     
     regs.h.ah=0x02;
     regs.h.bh=0x00;
     regs.h.dh=row;
     regs.h.dl=col;
     int86(VIDEO,&regs,&regs);
}
Compile error
'regs' uses undefined REGS
left of '.h' must have struct/union type

OK learning C using MS VC++
Found code on net, what header file should be included?
Can I even use this?

The compiler does not know what a 'REGS' is.
REGS has not been defined.

Are you using a 32 bit compiler?
If so, you will not find the REGS structure there.
You will need MSVC 1.52c or earlier (console app, too).
