View Full Version : C++ Advanced Console Output

I would consider my self decent in c++
Templates classes, polymorphism, namespaces, bitwise operators ,templates pointers, static, this etc etc
However I would not consider myself good at doing console I/O
Take man (The command) When you hit q it exits. You don't have to type q then hit enter. AND you don't have to have the entire man page printed out at once. You can scroll. The only way I could think to do that is to print thousands of newlines(Update print new lines print info) Still wouldn't be the same. Is there come kind of guide to console I/O?

@OP: There are libraries that provide the functionality that you want. In particular, "libncurses" has all kinds of functions for clearing screen, positioning the cursor, etc. Use your favourite search engine to find a tutorial on it.
