outtext() function in C

The header file graphics.h contains outtext() function which displays text at current position.

// driver code
int main()
    // gm is Graphics mode which is
    // a computer display mode that
    // generates image using pixels.
    // DETECT is a macro defined in
    // "graphics.h" header file
    int gd = DETECT, gm;
    // initgraph initializes the
    // graphics system by loading a
    // graphics driver from disk
    initgraph(&gd, &gm, "");
    // outtext fuction
    outtext("Hello Geek, Have a good day !");
    // closegraph function closes the
    // graphics mode and deallocates
    // all memory allocated by
    // graphics system .
