    I think you might be over-estimating the capabilities of a console.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    5 minutes clarifying the assignment with the tutor might save hours of fruitless manual searching.

    I have no intention of offending, but there's two options for this confusion.

    1. You have read your assignment incorrectly and should be doing a windows form application.

    2. Your tutor has no idea about programming and is following the manual he's been given to teach you about the subject.

    To be fair, the first option is mostly likely, and can happen if you're swamped with assignments. If it's number two, start making official complaints!

    A third option is that the poster him/herself has misunderstood the instructions in the sense that the console output is NOT expected to be italic.

    That's alright - we do get all sorts of "I've got an impossible task", which is OFTEN based on a misunderstanding of some sort - but not always.
