Well there is no Win32 code in console so it is not native. You need Cygwin. a few years back I compiled a version in Cygwin and made it available to our customers. You do not need the Cygwin environment. You only need the dll. So I created a zip file that contained console.exe and cygwin?.dll. It worked fine on the cmd.com prompt. It is console from 7.2.7 though.
