Annotation of wikisrc/curses_in_netbsd.mdwn, revision 1.2

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="">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.
1.2     ! kamil      12: * [[!template id=man name="getnstr" section="3"]] in NetBSD's curses will read up to N characters including NUL byte, while ncurses' getnstr(3) will read up to N characters not including NUL byte thus assuming buffer of size N+1
