Ok, but assuming I still want to go ahead and port PDCurses, where do I start? I'll need to create a Makefile (autoconf simply won't do, IMHO, to cross compile) and somewhere I need to put the screen painting code for AROS. > You'd probably have more luck with NCurses. Not sure, though I think I have a version that was supposedly ported to Amiga once, the code might be a lot more complicated, or something. It probably depends on which version is easier to compile. Johann P.S. The console support in AROS is currently very broken, so I might give up, or fix it. -- johann myrkraverk com (you know the drill with the @ and .)
