Looking for gem for text based screen IO

Hi,

I wanted to control the output, position of output to the console. Like
old school text based application. I have a utility that is runing
through many item and would like to show a status instead of puts()

Take a look at the ncurses package.

It’s not what I know that counts.
It’s what I can remember in time to use.

Matt L. suggested ncurses, and there’s a thread here on curses.

including this which has an example which seems to work.
