    Question console text effects

    Is there anyway of changing the way text is displayed. Like instead of white text maybe green. And instead of the text just appearing maybe a typewriter effect.

    Hello,

    This question has been asked many times before.

    The best thing to do is 1) Look in the FAQ or 2) Do a forum search. A forum search is not hard. Search for "color in console", etc...

    Segmentation Fault: I am an error in which a running program attempts to access memory not allocated to it and core dumps with a segmentation violation error. This is often caused by improper usage of pointers, attempts to access a non-existent or read-only physical memory address, re-use of memory if freed within the same scope, de-referencing a null pointer, or (in C) inadvertently using a non-pointer variable as a pointer.
