Well, you certainly have come across the limits of stdio.h. I heartily recommend the use of Curses which will give you nice colors and even a chance to build a "window" with a progress indicator bar and perhaps even a cancel "button". What's even better is that it is cross-platform and the API is simple.

[ambrus]: and try to leave everything else to automated systems without checking how what they write came out format-wise, and for those people, discounting the part about journals with a specific format above,

Discipulus havery can be a good neologism for: have very..;=)
