    coloured text output

    I'm new to linux programming though i at ease with c programming in DOS

    My question: How to output coloured text in Linux (in text mode i.e. without using Graphics mode)
    I used cprintf() in DOS but that is not suppotred under linux
    nor does Linux allow me to write to the VDU memory
    Please help.
