Erm, forget about it, it works if outputting using io:format("~s",[...]).

  Subject: using terminal control codes

  hi all,

  I tried to use terminal control codes (ANSI/VT100) to beautify the screen output, but it doesn't work. Would it be difficult to make it work? Where should I begin? 

  I know that in the general case this would require a lot of fiddling with termcap and friends, but for now I'd only want to play with what works on my screen.

  Thanks in advance,
