I am on Fedora Core 5 32+bit and learning standard C++ (not VC++) on my own using the terminal only and not any particular IDE. Is it possible to write and compile a small C++ program that can create very basic types of graphics in a terminal? Not sure if any thing else is required to be installed to make it work. I am not sure whether I am trying to be stupid here, but believe me I am getting more and more interested in the language day by day. I only wish that some one can guide me here. Thanks..
