    Is there a simple console GUI lib?

    I've been wondering, I want to create a "custom" GUI interface, one where I can control the style of the background, the cursors and font, and other things which I cannot control with the dos gui. Do I have to use a graphics library like SDL or OpenGL to do so, or did some equally as weird programmer create a framework for doing such a thing?

    (Just so you know, I want to program the doomsday computer from Lost).
