I have a parent and two children threads. one thread spits out info to stdout, while main program prompt user for further action.  my output, JUST NASTY, is messy.  How can I split the console and dedicate upper portion to thread and lower to main program.  up--> stdout, low-- stdin
little example would help?

I think you need ncurses for that.
Have a look at the manual, it has many features.
