PTVS python tool error " redirection is not supported"

i am trying to use the curses module so working with characters in the terminal and it is not working while using the python interactive in visual studios. Does anyone know why this may be?

curses is a fairly fragile module anyway, but since our interactive window is not a console it's got no chance of working. We don't expose any of the console-specific APIs because the functionality doesn't exist.

thanks for the the speedy reply.. is there any other module you would recommend for an ascii game?

curses should work fine in a console window, which is what it is designed for. There aren't any libraries that will work correctly with our interactive window.
