    Hello everybody!

    This is an amazing place you have built up here and I have never ceased to be amazed by the knowledge available...

    I have just one question which might seem quite easy to the right person so here goes. I am working with the console in C++ so all skin and bones with no graphics library or anything and I want to refresh the screen when I ask through a function. At the moment I call printf for my tile map and it ends up flickering so I wondered if I could in theory queue up all the data to be printed and only "sync" the screen when I say so it does it all at once and relives me of the "flickering" as it is refreshing line by line.

    Thank you very much in advance!
