Example of getviewsettings

/* getviewsettings example */
#include <graphics.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>
char *clip[] = { "OFF", "ON" };
int main(void)
   /* request autodetection */
   int gdriver = DETECT, gmode, errorcode;
   struct viewporttype viewinfo;
   int midx, midy, ht;
   char topstr[80], botstr[80], clipstr[80];
   /* initialize graphics and local variables */
   initgraph(&gdriver, &gmode, "");
   /* read result of initialization */
   errorcode = graphresult();
   if (errorcode != grOk) {  /* an error occurred */
printf("Graphics error: %s\n", grapherrormsg(errorcode));
printf("Press any key to halt:");
exit(1);   /* terminate with an error code */
   midx = getmaxx() / 2;
   midy = getmaxy() / 2;
   /* get information about current viewport */
   /* convert text information into strings */
  sprintf(topstr, "(%d, %d) is the upper left viewport
  sprintf(botstr, "(%d, %d) is the lower right viewport
corner.",viewinfo.right, viewinfo.bottom);
   sprintf(clipstr, "Clipping is turned %s.", clip[viewinfo.clip]);
   /* display the information */
   settextjustify(CENTER_TEXT, CENTER_TEXT);
   ht = textheight("W");
   outtextxy(midx, midy, topstr);
   outtextxy(midx, midy+2*ht, botstr);
   outtextxy(midx, midy+4*ht, clipstr);
   /* clean up */
   return 0;
