Hello. gotoxy() is not part of the standard C library and thus we can't be certain as to what you are refering to.

gotoxy() which places a text cursor at position xy on the screen was originally in UCSD Pascal: it doesn't appear in any of the standard Gnu C libraries. This post
directs you to the ncurses library.
