1.1 ! wiki 1: # curses in NetBSD
! 3: NetBSD is one of the last operating systems (or even the last one?) not using <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ncurses">ncurses</a>.
! 4: As curses is not as specified as you could wish, there are some differences to consider.
! 6: Note: This article covers curses as well as libform and libmenu, which are bundled together with ncurses.
! 8: This is meant to be an (naturally incomplete) list of what the programmer has to care for.
! 10: * [[!template id=man name="new_item" section="3"]] in NetBSD's curses copies the string you pass to him, while ncurses' new_item(3) just sets a pointer.
! 11: * [[!template id=man name="post_menu" section="3"]] in NetBSD's curses will return E_NO_ROOM if the names of the items are too long for the menu, while ncurses' post_menu(3) will just cut them.
