Below is the implementation of closegraph() in C.




// C Implementation for closegraph()
#include <graphics.h>
  
// driver code
int main()
{
    // gm is Graphics mode which is
    // a computer display mode that
    // generates image using pixels.
    // DETECT is a macro defined in
    // "graphics.h" header file
    int gd = DETECT, gm;
  
    // initgraph initializes the
    // graphics system by loading a
    // graphics driver from disk
    initgraph(&gd, &gm, "");
  
    // outtext function displays
    // text at current position.
    outtext("Press any key to close"
           " the graphics mode !!");
  
    getch();
  
    // closegraph function closes the
    // graphics mode and deallocates
    // all memory allocated by
    // graphics system .
    closegraph();
  
    return 0;
