It looks like ansicon is replacing win32console for windows. There is a thread about deprecating win32console.
Ok, it haven't happened yet so for now I'll change rainbow to first try to load ansicon and if it's missing try with win32console. What do you think?
Sounds good. I don't know much about either, so I'm unclear what they are doing and if they do anything different.
But it looks like it'll require one less gem for windows users, which is a plus.
Can anyone try using ansicon on Windows from ruby (irb) and tell me if it works?
