Blinking text

Post by angros47 »

Under Linux it's possible to achieve blinking text in the terminal, with the appropriate escape sequence, but it looks like FreeBasic doesn't support it. Yet, it can still be enabled using "printf"

Code: Select all

#include "crt/"

printf( chr(27)+"[5m")     'Enables blinking
print "Blinking Text"
printf(chr(27)+"[25m")    'Disables blinking
