     This program is a very basic animation. It uses the conio.h header file. It goes to the center of the screen, sets the text color, pauses for a second, and then resets the text and background color and prints more text. This is a verrrrrrrry basic animation.

				#include stdio.h
#include conio.h//you MUST have this header for this prog to work
#include dos.h//for the sleep() function
void ColoredText();//prototype for text doloring function
int main() {
ColoredText();//calling of the function
void ColoredText() {//Ladies and Gentlemen...The function!!

clrscr();//we clear the screen
gotoxy(24,1);//go to the 'x' 24 and the 'y' 1
textcolor(GREEN);//set the text to green
//the color has to be

cprintf("This is it!!");//the 'c' before the sleep(1);//take a good look at it for 1
textcolor(BLUE);//reset the text color
textbackground(YELLOW);//Hey! Advanced!
setting the backround behind the text to
clrscr();//clearing the screen
gotoxy(24,1);//moving to the center
cprintf("More of it!");//again we print
clrscr();//finally clearing the screen
