color in the console?

I was wondering you could put colored characters in the console. I was also wondering if conio.h or iomanp has something like it without using, system("color").

thanks, popa6200

P.S:i'm using C::B 13.12
a) yes you can
b) shouldnt use conio.h
c) +1 for not wanting to use system
d) your ide doesnt matter. rather the compiler that your using

the articles section is really a great place to explore. i cant tell you how many useful things there are in there

edit: dont think you can do it with iomanip. also if you want a cross platform solution i would use pdcurses (since you are on windows) which is equivalent to curses/ncurses for *nix
