NAME

libcurses, libtermcap, libtermlib - screen handling and optimization library  

SYNOPSIS

cc [ flag... ] file... -lcurses [ library... ]
 

DESCRIPTION

Functions in the libcurses library provide a terminal-independent method of updating character screens with reasonable optimization. The libtermcap and libtermlib libraries are identical to libcurses and are maintained for backward compatibility.

See libcurses(3XCURSES) for information about the curses library that conforms to X/Open Curses, Issue 4, Version 2.
