RLUTIL is simple utility collection to aid the creation of cross-platform console-mode roguelike games with C++ and C. At least that was the original idea. In reality, it mostly just contains functions to position and colorize text as well as reading keyboard input.


Just #include "rlutil.h" in your source code. It automagically detects if you are using C++ or C and adjusts the code accordingly (e.g. std::string vs. char*).


See the API reference in docs/HTML/ or the source code comments for documentation.
