Does the Classic PowerBASIC Console Compiler 4.0 have all the same
graphics commands that PB 3.5/Dos has?

If I have a PB/Dos program that performs lots of graphics commands
(SCREEN, VIEW, PSET, LINE, etc) will these function correctly when
compiled on the PB console Compiler 4? Or does that compiler limited to
just text output as far as screen functions go?

I would be surprised it it did.

No. Graphics in PBCC is done through the GRAPHIC keyword.

PBCC has good graphics, better than the DOS version, but it's
different. Here's an example:
