Cout colors

Question:
What can I do to make cout output text appear in different colors? I've looked in the iomanip.h file and didn't see anything, and the textcolor() function in conio.h doesn't apply to streams.

Answer:
Sorry, streams do not traditionally support colors.

Streams make outputting text rather trivial, but they just don't provide much control over how that text is displayed. Once you find yourself wanting to control that, it's time to consider other output functions.
