  • Description: SVr4 and XSI-Curses compatible curses library and terminfo tools including tic, infocmp, captoinfo.

Supports color, multiple highlights, forms-drawing characters, and automatic recognition of keypad and function-key sequences. Extensions include resizable windows and mouse support on both xterm and Linux console using the gpm library. C++ binding (not supported) and example. Ada95 binding and examples. Includes man pages, test programs. Approved to replace 4.4BSD curses, June 1995.
