Hello there,

I always used the window api for buffering, but I guess you have way more control over what is drawn when with this api. You can also use the old terminal without worrying about your buffer window. I think the window api is better in that regard that you can just write a normal program, and put everything the term api draws on a buffer window you created.

That is true. I found out about the Window API after having worked on this quite a bit :P
Though I'm using this API for my 3D rendering API, because I added the triangle function (which takes quite some time to get right) and I'm pretty happy with that. I just thought I'd share it :)
