    text colors with gcc (yes i've searched)

    I was wondering if there is a simple way to
    change the text color for a console-program
    using gcc (on linux).

    All I've found from searching (here and google)
    and the FAQ seem to be for Windows.
    Does this mean there's no support for it on
    gcc/linux?

    I think Curses is for Linux and has color (or is it nCurses?). I don't know about anything else though...
