Well there is no Win32 code in console so it is not native. You need
Cygwin. a few years back I compiled a version in Cygwin and made it
available to our customers. You do not need the Cygwin environment.
You only need the dll. So I created a zip file that contained
console.exe and cygwin?.dll. It worked fine on the cmd.com prompt.
It is console from 7.2.7 though.
