This is a real nuisance because the ansi.sys file that these solutions use
is no longer supplied on the system CD. Further, they no longer work on
Windows NT.  One solution, if you have the code (Mike Feldman's example),
you can get Jerry's version (Jerry van Dyke)

of Mike's Screen package, to make things work on a Wintel system.  Jerry's
page is well worth the visit if you are doing Ada on an Wintel box.
