output text… is there anything else needed? If I can get a
second I’ll do some research on this, but a quick google
doesn’t show people screaming about curses being broken on
win32, so I don’t know.

Yes, I would just go to Linux if I could.

I’ve never used curses, so I’m not sure what advantages it has overs
Windows’ own console functions.

Have you seen win32_console (on the RAA)?

Oooh, thanks for that! I may just write some kind of bridge layer so
all these curses apps can work nicely.

I would be quite interested in this if you ever get something working.
Diakonos cannot function under Windows for this very reason. Please
keep me informed of your progress, if any. :slight_smile:

[Diakonos] was one of the projects I was referring to. Once again I took out
all the Unix stuff and it ran, but looked terrible. A real problem to
me though is that the Windows console is so small and AFAIK you can’t
make it bigger. I quite often use an SSH window onto a Linux machine
because of that.

Dunno if you want to bother with it, but just to let you know, I made a
windows svn branch last year which can actually run under Windows,
but most of the special keys (arrows, F1-F12, etc.) don’t work, which
makes the editor quite crippled.

The main reason I found is because the curses function “keypad” is not
implemented on Windows. If that were somehow implemented, it might be
doable.

I’m really thinking of making something resizeable, perhaps graphical,
that looks to apps like it’s curses. It would work a bit like SSH or
possibly use grpahics in SDL so it’s portable.

Anyway, it’s all in the air right now considering how many projects I
am busy with!
