in console based programs like Midnight Commander or other TUI type programs
that use box drawing characters to create a user interfaces for input and
display of information.   However, I do want them to be portable to most
platforms that Python will run on.  I have actually found much more
information on designing fully graphical GUI interfaces using Tk or Qt or
GTK, but I know the other type is possible.  I suppose I have a preference
for the older console type programs.
