Re: Support for ConPTY?

Hi Andrey,

Thanks for your email. I am rather ignorant about the technical
issues, but if you take a look at the section titled

  ConHost - Investing in yesterday for tomorrow

in the referenced blog post it seems to indicate quite clearly that
the new API can be used to run *existing* Console applications so that
they appear to be basically Unix terminal applications (doing I/O
using VT codes, etc).
