"GNU Ncurses, a free software emulation of curses in SVR4 and more")
"The Ncurses (new curses) library is a free software emulation of curses
in System V Release 4.0, and more. It uses Terminfo format, supports pads
and color and multiple highlights and forms characters and function-key
mapping, and has all the other SYSV-curses enhancements over BSD Curses.
The ncurses code was developed under GNU/Linux. It has been in use for some
time with OpenBSD as the system curses library, and on FreeBSD and NetBSD as
an external package. It should port easily to any ANSI/POSIX-conforming
UNIX. It has even been ported to OS/2 Warp!")
