    Changing font style and color of text in C

    The text color and font is the same throughout the whole exe file. How can I call library and change them?
    I want to set the given numbers to red in a sudoku.

    P.S. Are there any online sudoku source codes in C?
    Thank you.

    Well that would depend on your OS / Compiler and project type (none of which you state).
    In the meantime, try the FAQ

    Have you tried google?
    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.

    Does this code change color of all the text? Can I change color of certain words only?
    Thank you

    When I compile the following code, an error occurs.
    I use Dev-C++. Does this software have the library conio.h?
    Thank you.


    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <conio.h>

    int main ( void )
    {
    textcolor ( MAGENTA );
    cprintf ( "This is a test\n" );

    return 0;
    }

    Thanks MDofRockyView, I have done this but an error occurs. My Dev-c++ doesn't say what error it is...

    Scroll down the FAQ to where it describes the Win32 console API functions.

    conio is a hack for backward compatibility with DOS.

    Oh, and be more specific than "an error occurs".
    Paste error messages.
