The console device provides the text-oriented interface for Intuition
windows.  It acts like an enhanced ASCII terminal obeying many of the
standard ANSI sequences as well as special sequences unique to the Amiga.
The console device also provides a copy-and-paste facility and an internal
character map to redraw a window when it is resized.
