It all depends on the operating system, and sometimes on the compiler you are using. For MS-Windows use console win32 api functions Note that you can't use the old MS-DOS color codes with modern MS-Windows compilers.

OS is Linux and I am using GNU compiler

Yup... Its compiler and os dependent.. For example, when using turbo c++, u cant use colors with cout, u have to use cprintf... If u use cout, it just comes as the default color..
