ASCII iColored n C/C++ URGENT! How do you do that? I mean, how do you write ascii characters with color? cout, printf? Is there any function such as LocateText(x,y) or something? Is there any way to access a linear buffer of characters in the screen? (i mean in a polite way, non assembly, i mean standard ansi c, etc) Please help!!!

I mean standard ANSI C


Neither C nor C++ have any notion of color. Nor does ASCII for that matter. Nor do their have a notion of keyboard or screen. But your particular platform API might - Without any more details, I can only point you to your documentation.

However, if you have a compatible console, you can try using VT100 or ANSI escape sequences - google will let you find them.


As a side note - Urgency is subjective. You won''t be helped any faster by a flurry of capital letters and exclamation points.
