This is really a function of the terminal emulation in which
you run the program, and what commands must be issued to the
terminal emulator in order to effect the operations you desire.

In the gnat examples directory is a program called diners which
positions the cursor in the window, but doesn't change colors.

However, that program will show the techniques for manipulating
the terminal window, and it can be easily extended to control
color as well (if you have a terminal emulator that supports color).

Another package for doing this is called curses, and an Ada binding to
curses is available at.
