Hi George,

This mailing list is for discussion of C++ standardization.

Your code contains many function calls that are not part
of the C++ standard, and have not been proposed to be part
of the C++ standard. Maybe you are on a Windows environment;
if so, consider contacting Microsoft technical support for
help. (Note: This is not an endorsement of Microsoft, and
I have no clue whether such approach would bear costs upon

In short, this mailing list is not a technical support forum.

So, basically I am trying to add a unique character, the symbol of power of 2 it is, so I set the mode as above to '16TEXT' and then printed the character in the 2nd line. Finally I wanted to add some more text, so i turned the mode to '8TEXT'.  Then I put a 'cout' to whrite the rest of the text but it didn't print anything. I would be really thankful if you could advise me. Thank you for your attention.
