### #ActualServant of the Lord

They aren't a class, just a collection of functions. You can copy the code into a new empty header file and a new empty source file.
You need to make sure the files are "added" to your "project" in whatever way your IDE (Visual Studio?) requires that.

Then, any source file that wants to use any of the functions in Console.h must #include "Console.h".

Your project needs to then call "ConsoleStartup()" when you enter "main()", and "ConsoleShutdown()" before you exit main(). I think.

Something like this:

int main()
{
if(ConsoleStartup() == -1)
return -1;

ResizeConsole(CONSOLE_WIDTH, CONSOLE_HEIGHT);

//setup anything else here.

while(playingGame)
{
//Handle any events.
//Do any time-based updates.
//Do any drawing.

Sleep(20);
}

ConsoleShutdown();

return 0;
}

Silly enough, it appears that I hard-code the console's caption text in the ConsoleStartup() function, so you'll want to edit that as well.
