ABSTRACT

Package CUSTOM_IO provides low-level I/O facilities, particularly
single-character input without the requirement for pressing the
RETURN or ENTER key.  The ability to set display colors for ANSI
devices is included.

This package is a part of the large ADA_TUTR offering, which is a
CBT course in Ada that was written in Ada.

Package CUSTOM_IO has been demonstrated to work on a variety of
UNIX-hosted Ada compilers, DEC VAX using DEC Ada, and the IBM PC
using Meridian Ada.
