Scrolling text

What is the most direct method to scroll text in a given region of a
console window? For example, if the console size is 50 rows by 80 columns,
and I only want to scroll the text in the region (18,23) by (32,45) how
would this be done? Is there a syscall I could use? I don't want to
have to compile in curses, which I don't have a clue on how to use anyway.
I would like to be able to access video text memory directly
(at 0x000B8000) but I don't think that is possible. Any suggestions?
And please, give examples! Thanks!
