this clears the screen.

this is definitely out of bounds for text mode (80x25).

you shouldn't mix stdio functions with conio functions. so, you should 
have used cprintf here. however, since you set the output coordinates to 
somewhere beyond the textmode screen, that would have probably crashed 
your program.

again, this window spans an area larger than the text mode screen.

header files are not linked, they are #include'd. I think the conio 
functions are in the DJGPP libc, so they would be linked automatically. 
The answer is simple, the screen is cleared because you called clrscr().

It is probably not a good idea to try to draw a parabola in text mode.
