Probably the most asked question in windows converted to linux:
How can you have collored text in a linux console program.
:)

And if anyone knows, in gVIM, how do you get it to keep you color scheme?

This search would probably be more effective than just 'color'

This is how I do it



char green[11]="\033[1;32m";
char blue[11]="\033[1;34m";

printf("%sThis is how you use colors\n", blue);
printf("%s-------------------\n", green);


I believe that there are various alternatives

Why not [] ?

char green[]="\033[1;32m";

char green[]="\033[1;32m"; is better
