textcolor() & clrscr() equivalent

Hi,
May I ask what the equivalent of the header file conio.h's functions textcolor() and clrscr() are for a win32 console application?

I get errors when trying to compile a program which uses these functions from conio.h in Microsoft Visual C++... some "undefined function name" error or stuff like that.

I understand that these functions will not work for 32-bit apps,
but is there an equivalent to this so that I could use them for my console applications?
