in any shell that supports job control

for example for running interactive or gui programs on the console:

see framebuffer-fbpdf function

see framebuffer-fbmpv function

or changing console font:

(defun console-font (x)
  (interactive "sfont: ")
  (suspend-emacs (format "setfont %s;fg" x))
  (message (format "font is %s" x)))
