    If you're using Windows,

    you can use:

    void textcolor (int color);
    void textbackground (int color);

    They are in Conio, remember, this isn't ANSI.

    example:
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <conio.h>
    
    int main(void)
    {
        textcolor(5);
        printf("This is colored\n");
        textcolor(2);
        printf("This is an another colored sentence\n");
        
        getchar(); /* pause */
        return 0;
    }

    this topic is alrdy mentioned enough but
    the best way to check what function u should use is to check the library reference that comes along with the compiler because
    it differs from compiler (BC,GCC,LCC).
    I dont know if this question is in the F.A.Q board
    But IMO i think this Q has to be in it.....
