Hello every one, Maybe also my response is not what he is looking for,but 
anyway here it is, I like to use Qbasic, and the response below, about FB also 
is a good choice,I can not say I know much about C or watcom, other that it can 
view and run myexecutables,...but once I have the executable, why use another 
prgram to run it? Whenit runs just fine directly from the Dos prompt...

Please can someone tell me how I might go about building a freedos
executable to do some simple graphics.
I have already installed the watcom compiler and built a simple
What I need is information on what functions to call to change
screen mode and to alter elements of the screen.

I'm not sure that C is a good choice to start programming... A BASIC dialect 
might be more adapted for an easy start. FreeBASIC is a very powerful compiler, 
and keeps things simple.
Just as a quick example, a BASIC program displaying a yellow circle with a 
green line on screen would be as simple as:
CIRCLE (320, 240), 120, 14
LINE (200, 120)-(440, 360), 2

Thanks for the response Matuesz.
I have the watcom compiler already installed on my debian box. So I would
like to stay with C.
I am also very familiar with C and C++ plus numerous other languages.
