problem is I can't seem to get these things to work at all.
First of all, I'd like to use Greek letters in the command prompt window, so I was going to
use unicode to do this. But in the command prompt, the unicode characters are displaying
as strange looking characters. I tried installing the 'Bitstream Vera Sans Mono' font in hopes
it had all the characters I needed but this didn't seem to work either. Is the problem the font?
And if so, is there a certain font that has unicode '03B1', etc? Here's some code I tried:
v = u'\u03B1\u03B2\u03B3'.encode('utf-8')
print v #just displays squares
The next problem I'm having is I can't seem to color the text with ansi escape sequences. I
added "device=%SystemRoot%\system32\ansi.sys" to the bottom of the CONFIG.NT file, and experimented with code like this:
print chr(27) + "[36mTest" + chr(27) + "[0m"
From what I found on-line, ascii character 27 seems to be the escape key I need, but I can'tseem to get it to work. It just displays an arrow.
If anyone has any thoughts, I'd love to hear them.
