    changing colour of the background ...

    Hi, I was playing aound with some color modifing codes there, and I came accross a function thing that looks like this:

    cmd /t:77

    and depending on the numbers ( I think they're in hex) at the end, it changes the colour of the background. Here's the problem:

    when I use

    system("cmd /t:77");

    in the code, it exits from my program and doesn't contimue with it after ... anyone know a different way to do it, or a modification of this one???

    cheers, Twomers
