old c libs

im brushing up on my c at the moment, i am using some old (1994) but good books, they use a lib called "conio.h", the problem is that this does not exist my by system.

my questions is this, is "conio.h" not present because it has been replaced with a new lib, or some similar situation.

im using mandrake 8.1 download edition, im pretty sure its not just a problem of not having the lib installed because ive been using gcc for LFS with no problems.

IIRC, conio was a Borland Turbo C/C++ library that mapped an 80x25 display and did colors and direct cursor positioning. On Linux, the ncurses library provides these functions.
