    Neither the language nor the Standard Library can do that. Try WIN32...

    If you type help at the Command prompt it gives you a list of all the commands. TITLE will allow you to change the title from the command prompt at least on my version of Windows XP. You just type "TITLE text". If you want to change the command prompt you would use PROMPT. "Help command" gives you more information on each of them. If you are trying to do this programatically, then you would use the Window Console functions.

    You may teach a person from now until doom's day, but that person will only know what he learns himself.

    Now I know what doesn't work.

    A problem is understood by solving it, not by pondering it.
