The answer depends on your chosen platform. Python hasn't got a
cross-platform console library as one of its included batteries.

First try the curses module. It does come with Python on systems
with a curses port.

For Windows, there's the Effbot's console module.

Or go to plan B: Use a Tkinter or other GUI interface's text
