    8 royal blue arial

    Hey I was wondering if anyone can help,I'm a first year college student and doing an assignment but I sa something that would make it look really great but I can't remember where I saw it , there are comands to change the colour of text and make them 'flash' etc in C they were like \1 and \2 I think... If anyone can help I would really appreciate it, I use both Borland and Visual C++

    Can you be more specific?
    There are many compilers from both sources, and there is no single good answer given the range of possibilities
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    As far as the program is concerned, there are a couple of points you might want to look at:

    1) Main should be like this
    Code:
    int main( void )
    Also I see you used fflush( stdin ); to clear your buffer. You should have a look at this and this.

    As far as the text colour thing goes, good luck. You can look
    here for a start. Then try a search on the board.

    The first thing you need to do is to discover functions. A 400+ line main() which has barely begun to grow to its true size is a horrifying prospect.

    Like every case in main() should be
    case 1: do_british(); break;
    case 2: do_danish(); break;

    The second thing you need to do is get a lot more consistent about your indentation. Every editor has a different view of tabs, so stick to using just spaces for indentation. Then at least your code will look the same to everyone.

    Since you included conio.h, I guess
    cprintf()
    textcolor()
    textattr()
    are the functions you need to be looking at
