ANSI Lib released, have a look at the Hollywood libraries page!

Ansi library is an include file for Hollywood that will help you to manage ANSI escape codes so you can print colored text in the console of your host system.

I’ve developed this library to have an invaluable help while I’m debugging applications because this way I’m able to spot on the fly error and warning messages that are hilighted from the rest of the messages.

Of course you need that your host system console is able to understand escape codes, but almost any OS is able to do that except Windows, for which you need to install thirdy party application to accomplish the task.

I’m using ansicon program to make use of ANSI codes in my Windows development machine.
