Over the years, Visual Fortran users have asked how to get console applications to display color, bold and move the cursor around. "Back in the day", one could do this by loading the driver ANSI.SYS and sending ANSI escape sequences, but that went away after Windows 95. You can do all that stuff with calls to the Windows API console routines, but who wants to do that?
According to this post, a coming update to Windows 10 completely overhauls the console environment, adding support for many ANSI (and VT100) escape sequences. Looks like fun!
