Attempting to learn

I'm used to basic and visual basic (some java experience) so in
learning c/c++ I'm trying to duplicate things I've already done.
The latest has been to draw a box on the screen (windows version
console) as with basic...not a problem with the exception of
re-positioning the cursor. Am completely unable to find a command (or
any link to a series of commands) that will help me to achieve this,
what I thought, simple goal.

Any suggestions?
