Basic code help

A really, really simple question...... (dont laugh!)

I need some help on some basic code. Can someone tell me the command to clear the screen? I know what it was in C but I cant find it in C++.

Also, how can you change the colour of text?

Thanks

Sorry, but there is no command for this.  Even C does not have such a command.   C and C++ are written to be hardware and platform independant.  they do not assume that they are running on a compuyter that has a display, they may be runnign on a computer with a teletype or brail printer for example, and there is no way to clear the output in that case.

Now there are OS or hardware specific ways of doing this.  These are not part of C/C++, but are part of the operating system or platform you are running on.  However, these are not portable techniques.  i.e. it might work in Windows but won't even compile in Unix, etc.

What OS are you using?  What compiler?
