Console Based Development

Console based applications are applications which tend to run in a Command or DOS window. Console based applications were widely used with Windows 98 and older operating systems. Graphical user interfaces have mostly replaced console or text based interfaces. Console based interfaces these days perform specific tasks such as act as conduits to unlock advanced features of other GUI based programs or are designed to allow for easy scheduling.
