= Win32::Console * http://rubyforge.org/projects/winconsole * http://github.com/luislavena/win32console * http://rdoc.info/projects/luislavena/win32console == DEPRECATION NOTICE Win32::Console has been deprecated in favor of an external tool named ANSICON: * https://github.com/adoxa/ansicon * http://blog.mmediasys.com/2010/11/24/we-all-love-colors/ This project is left here for history purposes but no further development will be done. == DESCRIPTION Win32::Console allows controling the windows command line terminal thru an OO-interface. This allows you to query the terminal (find its size, characters, attributes, etc). The interface and functionality should be identical to Perl's counterpart. A port of Perl's Win32::Console and Win32::Console::ANSI modules. This gem packages Gonzalo Garramuno's Win32::Console project, and includes a compiled binary for speed. The Win32::Console project's home can be found at: http://rubyforge.org/projects/win32console == FEATURES Win32::Console::ANSI is a class derived from IO that seamlessly translates ANSI Esc control character codes into Windows' command.exe or cmd.exe equivalents. To ease usage, you can use in combination with term-ansicolor gem and avoid writing ANSI codes manually. == EXAMPLES To output a simple bolded string, try this script: require 'rubygems' require 'win32console' include Win32::Console::ANSI include Term::ANSIColor puts bold << "bolded text" << clear << " and no longer bold." == INSTALL To install from rubygems, simple run: gem install win32console To install from source, make sure you have the Ruby development kit from RubyInstaller on your Windows host, install the following gems: * rake * hoe * rake-compiler Then run the following: rake gem gem install pkg\win32console-1.3.0.gem == DEVELOPERS: After checking out the source, run: $ rake newb This task will install any missing dependencies, run the tests/specs, and generate the RDoc. == LICENSE This program is FREE; you can redistribute, modify, disassemble, or even reverse engineer this software at your will.
