QB64 will include a pure console mode in the future

Just like it will also include higher resolutions and bit depths. I'm still considering the best way to implement such features. Someone suggested a meta-command or something similar to control this. It could also be a selectable screen mode but this opens other cans of worms because QB64 always begins in SCREEN 0 WIDTH 80,25. Another option is a compiler switch/option. All in all, I'm leaning towards the first option atm.

On a side-note, emulated SCREEN 0 (what is currently used) will still copy to console output of a shelled program back into the virtual window. So SHELLing DIR will still produce a listing on screen.
