Announcing ncurses @VERSION@

- -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.

- -In mid-June 1995, the maintainer of 4.4BSD curses declared that he -considered 4.4BSD curses obsolete, and is encouraging the keepers of -Unix releases such as BSD/OS, freeBSD and netBSD to switch over to -ncurses.

- -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!

- -The distribution includes the library and support utilities, including a -terminfo compiler tic(1), a decompiler infocmp(1), clear(1), tput(1), tset(1), -and a termcap conversion tool captoinfo(1). Full manual pages are provided for -the library and tools.

- -The ncurses distribution is available via anonymous FTP at -the GNU distribution site -ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/ncurses/ . -
It is also available at -ftp://invisible-island.net/ncurses/ . - -
