well.. there's the curses module. it's a standard module so the docs are
in the library reference..
or if you just want to do something simple, you can just use ansi escape
codes directly, so to 'print a character or line, at line 10, column 18,
in bright white on red', you could write
print "\033[10;18H\033[37;41m" + string
after a quick search on google i found this reference:
