Well if you are a glutton for punishment, and working on Windows, start here. The trickiest part is, your console application is going to actually be a Windows application behind the scenes. The logististics of what that actually means can prove a bit confusing, beyond the fact one type of application has a main() and the other has a WinMain() entry point. It should prove an interesting learning experience, although I warn you Alice, this rabbit hole is deep, dark and kinda scary.

EDIT:

You can probably go the pure console app route using spawn and a pipe to control communications, that should be more cross platform but perhaps a bit more confusing at the end of the day. This example illustrates using a pipe to communicate between a parent and child process opened using spawnl().
