This library provides a console similar to the consoles in Quake and other games but with lots of added features. A console is meant to be a very simple way of interacting with a program and executing commands. Commands are linked to the console with callback functions so that when a command is typed in, a specific function is executed automatically. This package contains the runtime library.
