I've been reading a few threads, and I noticed that you guys always are talking a console. Now when you say console do you then mean a program that runs in dos and only show lines.
Or do you mean a quake/halflife like console (though the idea may be the same)
hehe i think it's a dos console, :)
Then I don't get what's so damn specail about it. It's like what the first 3 pages of all C/C++ books is about. :)
I believe anything which displays only text, is described as a console. Thats the answer I got when I asked th same question anyway :)
Distinguishing between types of applications is sometimes necessary in order to answer questions appropriately, particularly when only snippets of code are presented. That's all. :)
