So I recently started studying C++ and C. Not to replace my beloved C#, but to acquire more programming knowledge. I stopped from writing C# for something like a week. I honestly missed it ! :( So yesterday I decided to go write some C# :). I was creating Console Applications in C++. In C, I was honestly developing for Nintendo Gameboy. But that's another story. In C++, to create graphics, I used text with colors. Using some simple techniques I could transform a 5 into a block with color in console, but to make pictures I needed to write. Something like 0's and 1's and 2's to then blend it with different colors. I used a simple thing that is sometimes a big pain in the ass. I'm talking about arrays. So I decided to make a software that could transform an image into text. I searched it, and I started playing with System.Drawing.Imaging. I successfully made an app to do what I wanted.

Yes, now I can easily create Image arrays. Then I discovered that C++, or at least Visual C++ 2010 Express, didn't really support Extended ASCII, And I was using one of those 255 not 1xx. So then I though in making options.

Now the user can select between ASCII Graphics, ASCII Graphics with Transparency , numbers 0 to 3 and numbers 0 to 9. Nice. Then I started using it. But I realized that I couldn't just write just "0123456789" in arrays. I had to write "0, 1, 2, 3,...". Damn.

Now I could write an array automatically. It was fast to update it :). Now I can just copy and paste! :D
Now it can do stuff like this
