    Question Print Screen

    Is it possible to print the contents on the screen in colour by using the system(); function in stdlib.h header file? I tried to look all over but I can't seem to figure it out.
    Thanx in advance.

    No. ANSI C doesn't support graphics so nothing in stdlib.h will support anything special like that. system is used to make the OS execute a command.

    If you want to change the color of your text, you need to either use a library to do so, or write video memory directly.
