Annotation of wikisrc/curses_in_netbsd.mdwn, revision 1.1

1.1     ! wiki        1: # curses in NetBSD
        !             2: 
        !             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.
        !             5: 
        !             6: Note: This article covers curses as well as libform and libmenu, which are bundled together with ncurses.
        !             7: 
        !             8: This is meant to be an (naturally incomplete) list of what the programmer has to care for.
        !             9: 
        !            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.
