(synopsis "Terminal emulation (termcap, terminfo) library")
"GNU Ncurses is a library which provides capabilities to write text to
a terminal in a terminal-independent manner. It supports pads and color as
well as multiple highlights and forms characters. It is typically used to
implement user interfaces for command-line applications. The accompanying
ncursesw library provides wide character support.")
