Portably? Use escape sequences for terminal or ncurses. Or just learn non-canonical mode of unix terminal. Terminals were invented long time ago to print lines and read lines without any formating like colors. If you do anything beyond simple reading and writing, you are dealing with quite complicated things. IMO, best for you will be using ncurses.
