For reference, you can also get it to beep using ncurses. Screen.Beep As for colour, it can be done rather simply. Window.Print("String ", X, Y, Attr.Normal, Pair[Color.Red, Color.Green]) Where the first of the pair is foreground and the second is background. The whole window can be done using the f...
