I am new to programming and brand new to Python and,
of course, I have a few questions.  Thanks in advance
for any help you can offer and bear with my ignorance!

1.  Can someone point me to the module (if it exists)
that would allow me to do such C++ type things as
clearscreen, change the background/foreground colors,
and especially, a python equivalent of C++'s gotoxy.

2.  Is it possible to have input be either a string or
number, depending on what the user inputs?  In other
words, I would like to create a menu with options
#1-4, and option X and Q to quit.  Is that possible?

I would love any help you can offer.  I just
downloaded python two days ago and I am LOVING it!  

Thanks again,
