Re: Curses

So how do I go about getting this changed for the Ruby Curses Library?
Sam Overdorf

Personally, in the recent curses program I wrote, I used ruby-ncurses.
It has the disadvantage of not being in the standard library. On the
other hand, it follows the C API very closely. Although documentation
is lacking, the C man pages and the couple of example in the
distribution are really all you need as the translation from the C api
to Ruby is straight-forward and consistent.

Don’t take me wrong, more documentation and a separate more Ruby-esque
API would be nice. It is just that given the almost 1-to-1 mapping
between the two APIs, it was fairly easy to use the C documentation.

I feel that incorporating ruby-ncurses to the standard library would be
better than modifying Curses.

My 2 cents,
Guillaume.

The first step in doing that is NOT top-posting :slight_smile:

Write a patch and submit it through rubyforge.org. Remember, though,
that there may be countless programs that depend on the current names.

Personally, I would just use the library as-is since there is no
functional change you would be making.
