i want to create a text editor using turbo c++(including all the menu options using graphics) and i strictly do not want to use VC++. i would like to know how could i start up with that(what all functionalities and headers must be included).
could you also please suggest me any reference.
Probably for such a complex application you need to use almost all the header files. First create the interface and menus and associate a function call everywhere onclick of that rectangle.
Secondly create a linked list where each node represent a single alphabet now create a function that displays all the words inside a rect and a cursour where ir can move with the help of the scan codes of the arrow button.
Start building the application and in case of any doubt or problem please feel free to get back to me.
