Would you be able to describe all different options on Microsoft Visual Studio application.

Ex: Application Type: Windows Application Console Application DLL Static Library

With Additional Options: Empty Project Export Symbols Precompiled Header

And option to add common header files for: ATL MFC

What are these options? how do they differ from each other and what is produced with a combination of them? 18:32, 3 October 2007 (UTC)Miles

I added some console applications, but wasn't logged in. --Anthonybaldwin (talk) 18:06, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Stupid article[edit]

Can we just delete this.. no one uses xairc, it isn't even in the debian repository. There is no link to the software, it probably isn't actively maintained. And, it probably isn't noteworthy. EvanCarroll (talk) 19:09, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

I have reverted your edits. This is uncalled for. Console application has nothing to do with 'game consoles'. Tothwolf (talk) 21:43, 23 March 2009 (UTC)


This article should probably mention the vast amount of IBM 3270 console applications (CICS/IMS) which are still used in enterprise business today. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:25, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

Against merge with Text-based user interface[edit]

Text-based user interface is about a trend in or style of UI design, while Console application is about a type of application. It is possible to have a text-based user interface in an application that is not a console application (like many of the entries in Category:Hacking_video_games) and many console applications do not have a text-based user interface. (handling input-output through files for instance) --BenMcLean (talk) 18:43, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
