    About those text colors...

    How can you make text right next to eachother different colors? With:
    Code:
    SetConsoleTextAttribute(GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE), FOREGROUND_BLUE | FOREGROUND_INTENSITY);
    you have to make a new line via endl to make a new color text, or else everything is the same color. So what if you want two words right next to eachother different colors without a new line?

    You don't have to use endl, just flush the output stream and you can put it all on the same line.

    // Change the color
    cout<< "part of the text" <<flush;
    // Change the color
    cout<< "The rest of the text" <<endl;
