FreeBSD's libcurses is ncurses, and it also uses the same terminal descriptions that terminfo-using systems do (just in termcap format), so you shouldn't have any problems. If you want to be portable across all systems, I think some commercial systems' curses libraries don't do color, so you'll have to check for that. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
