Chapter 17. Understanding ANSI.SYS > Controlling Your Screen with ANSI.SYS

Controlling Your Screen with ANSI.SYS

Now that you understand how to issue ANSI.SYS commands in batch files, in text files, and as part of a PROMPT command, you're ready to use ANSI.SYS commands to control and customize your screen display.

All ANSI screen commands begin with the normal Escape code and a left bracket ([) and end with a letter of the alphabet. The letter depends on the type of command you are asking ANSI.SYS to execute. In all instances, the capitalization of the ending letter is important. As you are working through the examples in this chapter, pay strict attention to the capitalization.
