    input

    is it possible to have the point in the console where the user inputs data to be ABOVE some output on the screen.
    for example, if you wanted the input to be in a box:

    display:

    input here:
    _______________________
    | |
    | |
    |_______________________|

    Code:
    cout << "input here:" << endl << endl;
    cout <<  "_______________________" << endl;
    cout << "|                                              |" << endl;
    cout << "| " ;
    // and somehow allow input to happen in here while already displaying output below
    cout << "                                             |" << endl;
    cout << "|_______________________|" << endl;
    is something like this possible?
