"Free clue: "escape codes" , more useless information for this novice.

No, not useless. Anyone with even half a clue could put that into Google,
and find the information he needed. Just because you are incapable of
logical, reasoned thinking, do not assume that nobody else can do it.

Dan's reply was the usual antagonistic/egotistic mantra, nothing more.

There was nothing "antagonistic/egotistic" about it. It was simply the
correct answer to the question asked.

Go see if you can learn something about Linux, instead of wasting your
