You have to find some standard library (dependend of your
operating system) which contains something equivalent to
clrscr.  On DOS and OS/2, look into the EMX documentation
libref.doc (it is a C library, but never mind -- GPC.GUIDE
explains how to use it with GPC).  With Linux, write the 
terminal escape sequences to the screen to emulate functions
of CRT -- see the etc/termcap file for details.

Or you can wait a little: I am writing a system-independent
replacement for crt, graph, and the whole Turbo Vision (but in
graphics mode).  (Some people say, there would be no need for it,
but I won't stop. :-)  I hope to be ready for the first release
(of only the crt part) this year.

I am afraid, no.  But read README.TURBO, there are some things
documented, how GPC differs from Turbo.

Bye,
