iron-term-console is a library for IronRuby that makes use of the .Net framework System.Console and related classes to provide colored output for ANSI formatted strings.
For the Ruby OneClick installer, a package called win32console exists to provide this functionality. It makes calls to the Win32 API, including bit twiddling, to provide colored console output for that Ruby distribution. In IronRuby, we have direct access to the .Net Base Class Library. Rather than writing C# code to create an IronRuby module to interact with a C++ API, this library directly uses the .Net BCL, and write the code directly in Ruby.
