I have Open Watcom 1.9 and Digital Mars C and am wondering how to do some console tricks such as relocate the cursor and change the color of text from a WinNT command-line application. I also want to know if Win32 API functions such as CreateFileEx() are by default available.

Yes, non-GUI Win32 APIs can still be used.
