Commentary

When a project claims it needs this to run, it needs to run in a terminal which understand the ANSI terminal control codes (more formally known as "ECMA-48") in order for their output to be intelligible. Almost all modern consoles and terminal emulators understand these codes, sometimes under the guise of a particular terminal standard which includes them, such as vt100 or vt220. For older MS-DOS systems, a driver such as ANSI.SYS may need to be loaded.
