Console Window Questions

P: n/a
Hello, I have 2 questions regarding the console window in a console
application

1) How do I make a prompt follow the blinking cursor? For instance, I
have a prompt of ">" to let the user know they can type a command. The
problem is that if the console window gets updated before the user types
anything the prompt is left behind and when done they are left with just a
blinking cursor (no prompt).

2) Are there any web site that shows tips and tricks for using the
console window? For instance, in the old Basic you had the view print
command which was great for keeping static data inside a DOS window.

Thank in advance!!
