/* colorout.hpp
 * (c) 2013 Daniel S. Roche, USNA
 *
 * The class colorout below provides the functionality of
 * cout or cerr (depending on the first constructor argument being
 * 1 or 2, respectively). The only difference is that the output
 * is printed in the color corresponding to the second argument.
 * You use it by first calling the constructor to make a new object:
colorout out(1, 'r'); // r is for red
 * and then you can use that just like cout:
out << "This is " << "all red!\n";
 * Note that cout still prints in the default color.
