Most os'es lie about physical memory.
Under dos generally coreleft() or heapfree() tells you how much is available
to your program.

Clolout output? text or graphics?
For text you can use direct video mem access, or built in functions that
come with you compiler like
textcolor() textattribute() forground() background() etc..
