There is no single standard function for this.

C++ (and C) were supposed to be platform-independent, but features like these call for platform-specific solutions. You need to know the dimensions of your console for instance and to get this, every operating system has its own solution.

You would need something like this:

  • platform-dependent API to get the width of the console where you output the standard output
  • calculate the length of the text (should be string.size())
  • platform-dependent API to position your cursor
  • put the cursor at (width - length) / 2 and print out the text.

The answer to another question very similar was

std::string center(std::string input, int width = 113) { 
    return std::string((width - input.length()) / 2, ' ') + input;
