Default graphics in C++

I have problem connected with activete library (graphics.h)
under rhide (compilator C++). I set in motion programm with
help and are problems (BGI graphics not ANSI compatible) and
not identifity functions contents in this library. My programm:

#include <graphics.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>

int main(void)
   /* request auto detection */
   int gdriver = DETECT, gmode, errorcode;
   int xmax, ymax;

   /* initialize graphics and local variables */
   initgraph(&gdriver, &gmode, "");

   /* read result of initialization */
   errorcode = graphresult();
   /* an error occurred */
   if (errorcode != grOk)
      printf("Graphics error: %s\n", grapherrormsg(errorcode));
      printf("Press any key to halt:");

   xmax = getmaxx();
   ymax = getmaxy();

   /* draw a diagonal line */
   line(0, 0, xmax, ymax);

   /* clean up */
   return 0;
(*)Where is error?

Your error message itself says this:
"BGI graphics not ANSI compatible"

The graphics you used is not a standard C/c++ code. It is not ANSI or ISO code.

You can try compiling it in Turbo C++ instead.

you should need to specify the default path or path where egavga.bgi file exist...for example
initgraph(&gdriver, &gmode, "\\tc\\bgi");
