its a drop in replacement, its just different than you thought it would be :)

well, the first one is trivial. but the second one is impossible - since 
buffering screen content (or even reading screen content) is not supported by 
conio at all. (but infact my implementation does, as i needed it for my tetris

i actually prefer to simply link another library and NOT change the individual 
program. but again, if you really wanted this, the changes would be trivial.

thats not exactly how a bounty works though - you dont ask people wether they 
are interested first. you put up the money, and then when someone is 
eventually interested, he claims the bounty :) and i surely wont do that 
before the $$$ counter meets whatever i think is suitable. and ofcourse i wont 
tell what that would be either, because thats also not how a bounty works :)

from many writers, it's research.
