    Color Program (no help required)

    because these forums are mainly used for help, I wanted to enrich the environment with a little program I am working on, I have one that has more code but this is the program before I added to it. A nice color interface!

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    #define RESET		0
    #define BRIGHT 		1
    #define DIM		2
    #define UNDERLINE 	3
    #define BLINK		4
    #define REVERSE		7
    #define HIDDEN		8
    
    #define BLACK 		0
    #define RED		1
    #define GREEN		2
    #define YELLOW		3
    #define BLUE		4
    #define MAGENTA		5
    #define CYAN		6
    #define	WHITE		7
    
    void textcolor(int attr, int fg, int bg);
    int main()
    {
    	char ans;
    	system("clear");
    	printf("\t\t\t\t");
    	textcolor(BRIGHT,BLUE,BLACK);
    	printf("Welcome!");
    	textcolor(RESET,WHITE,BLACK);
    	printf("\nTest!\n");
                    // Menu plus more functions here
    	printf("Do you want to continue? [y/n]: ");
    	scanf("%c",&ans);
    	printf("%c\n",ans);
    	if(ans == 'y' )
    	{
    		printf("good!"); //more code here
    	}
    	else
    	{
    		printf("bad!"); // more code here
    	}
    	printf("\n");
    	return 0;
    }
    
    void textcolor(int attr, int fg, int bg)
    {	char command[13];
    
    	/* Command is the control command to the terminal */
    	sprintf(command, "%c[%d;%d;%dm", 0x1B, attr, fg + 30, bg + 40);
    	printf("%s", command);
    }
    // more functions here
    
    //basically I commented out the stuff I had in the bigger program
    the original source was found on some website, I will post it as soon as I find it, the true author of textcolor() should get credit.

    If you didn't write textcolor, what did you write that is so great besides a poor yes/no interface. Try this:

    Code:
    typedef enum boolean { FALSE, TRUE } Boolean;
    
    Boolean UserSaysYes(void)
    {
         int  c;
    
        printf(" (y,n)? ");
        do {
            while ((c = getchar()) == '\n');
            if (c == 'y' || c == 'Y' || c == 'n' || c == 'N')
                return (c == 'y' || c == 'Y');
            printf("Please respond by typing one of the letters y or n\n");
        } while (1);
    }

    BTW LP no offense intended, it was three in the morning and homework was taking me way longer than I expected. I thought I had seen that code in a linux mag somewhere, and I was just trying to be an arse. Not necessary...

    actually, that wasn't my intention...
    I posted it because I was really bored, so I searched for something interesting on linux programming and added a line or two and posted it, just a reason to post something. (Hint: wanted to reach Senior Member sooner)

    the code really isn't complicated if you read the article that came with it.
    no, here is something complicated...
    (not really, just annoying)
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    int main()
    {
    	int x,_x,__x,x__;printf("\n"); scanf("%d",&_x);scanf("%d",&__x);x__ = __x++;
    	x = (_x++) - (__x - x__);if(x>__x){ return 0; }	for(;x<__x;x++){  if(x = __x-1)
    	{ printf("\ndone\n");}}
    	return 0;
    }
    sorry if I am annoying anyone, I am really bored.

    umm, on my compiler.... stdlib.h isn't required for this program to run or compile succesfully.
