Just trying to get the ncurses libform compiled with pdcurses - noticed a 
slight difference..

Looking at the return values for the pdcurses winnstr family of functions:

        All functions return OK on success and ERR on error.

Whereas the ncurses functions :

       All of the functions return ERR upon failure, or the number of 
characters actually read into the string.

As the libform files "frm_driver.c" function Windows_To_Buffer makes use of 
this count - its causing me troubles (as pdcurses is returning 0!)

For now - I'm working around it in my version of the libform code - but which 
is the "right" return value ?

Any thoughts ?
