Bash/shell programming

I want to know if anybody know if there are equivalent functions to those of the windows console i/o functions. Things like direct character writing, exact placement, adding/removing color to characters. If you know functions for doing things like this with console applications, PLEASE let me know. Thanks.

    you can use ncurses. the problem with the 'simple answer' is usually that there are so many terminal types out there that handle colors differently.

    Do you happen to know where I could find some good documents on ncurses?
    Ethereal software and Mag monitors, doesn't get much better now does it?
