Well it does work, do you have it all in the correct folder? Or missing some library? Since that's like the only causes of it not working.

maybe instead of just saying "help me!", try to show us an error or what you expected to happen vs what actually showed in the terminal or something. Thanks

LoL, I literally just wrote this. I see you found some over 100 I didn't think to look for, so thanks for that.
I like how you used defines, instead of function calls. A difference in my header, is I took all the defines and made an array. that way I can create random color effects, or functions for colors, by passing the array an index.
you might want to add:
#ifndef ANSI_color_codes_H
#define ANSI_color_codes_H
#endif

while its not a color code, there is also underscore, and double underscore at:
#define UNDERLINE "\033[0;52m"
#define UNDERLINE_2 "\033[0;21m"

When I utilize this library, it functions properly in the VS Code console. However, when I execute the console application in Windows CMD, the boldness of the texts is not displayed. Only the colors and backgrounds are shown.

Is there a way I can use a hex/rgb color code in ansi?

It doesn't work, help plz.
My output using this library looks like:

e[0;31m>> Select input:

>> 1 - random
>> 2 - manual
e[0m

e[0;31m appears instead of colored text. I think smth wrong with my console. I'm using Visual Studio 2019 with Windows 10. Tried to use this library on my another laptop, with the same config, but the same result. Help me plz :3
