whenever i ask the user to enter data in ms-dos, the user enters something on the keyboard and then presses enter and sees the outout on the next line. Is there any way i can see the output at same line?

You can give the position of out put by just using the function gotoxy(x,y)\

Just use this function in this way:

gotoxy(x,y);
cout<<//your output;

And the thing is that i dont know when the user will want to output the data, thats why x,y should be always increasing

You should write your own input function.. A loop with getch() from stdin and waits for CR.. but you will need to implement arrow keys (if you want), backspace etc... and at the end, you won't print CR, that's it..

Ok then, use getx and gety functions to get the current positins of the cursor.

Got?
