Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

curses is a UNIX library of functions for controlling a terminal's display screen from a C program. It can be used to provide a screen driver for a program (such as a visual editor) or to improve a program's user interface.

This handbook will help you make use of the curses library in your C programs. We have presented ample material on curses and its implementation in UNIX so that you understand the whole, as well as its parts.

Note: This handbook covers Ken Arnold's original Berkeley implementation of curses, not the System V version.

Topics covered include:

  • Windows, screens, and images.
  • Multiple windows.
  • The WINDOW structure.
