MicroVGA conio Text User Interface Library

Console I/O C functions, or conio.h is a header file (sometimes called "conio library") used in Windows console applications or MS-DOS compilers to create text user interfaces. This header declares several useful library functions for performing "console input and output" from a program.

MicroVGA-CONIO library provides conio.h-compatible interface for embedded applications using MicroVGA-text modules.

MicroVGA-CONIO library can be used with almost every microcontroller, starting with low-cost 8-bit MCUs such as i8051/PIC16/ATtiny, through 32-bit powerful system-on-chips (such as various ARM/MIPS systems), to fully featured embedded Linux boards. Small conio application can fit into 4 kbytes of flash and 128 bytes of RAM!
