I am trying to make a text display lib in rust It seems windows do not like ansi escape codes.

@Kasil does it operates the same way in CMD.COM ? (or CMD.EXE I don't remembre which one it is)

@Hiro yes exactly the same. It seems I have to use winapi calls to do that in windows.

@Kasil Arg how did it even work in MS-DOS I did that back in the days but can't remember.

@Kasil I mean besides writing in video RAM which I think is what I did in retrospect but wouldn't be quite the most Windows-y thing to do.

@Kasil @Hiro It’s because they actually use the same terminal emulator

Microsoft is preparing a replacement called Windows Terminal though, I wonder if it works any differently in that?
