Pseudoterminals and Win32

I need to emulate the functionality of Unix pseudoterminals on Win32 for (NT) console applications.

I had a look at cygwin and there isn't anything (I can find) specifically relating to ptys.

Can anyone please offer any suggestions regarding recreating the core functionality of ptys on Win32.

I am a Unix/C programmer that has been handed the task of porting some Unix software to Win32 and I am experiencing some difficulty.

Thank-you in advance
