I found your code for color at the console, and need to know two things.  I am in a c++ class, and can I distribute that code?  Second, can I edit that code?

I don't have a problem with you editing it or using it.  That is why I posted it.

But

That code is windows-specific.  So it will only work on a windows computer and actually only on a compiler that generates 32 bit windows console programs (most modern ones do, but very old ones don't).   Most programming courses want you to program in non-OS-specific ways.  i.e they want your code to be able to compile and run on any computer.  like a Mac or Unix computer.  So you really need to ask your teacher how he/she feels about it.
