cursr: Cursor and Terminal Manipulation

A toolbox for developing applications, games, simulations, or agent-based models in the R terminal. Included functions allow users to move the cursor around the terminal screen, change text colors and attributes, clear the screen, hide and show the cursor, map key presses to functions, draw shapes and curves, among others. Most functionalities require users to be in a terminal (not the R GUI).
