Changed in version 1.6:
Added support for the
ncurses library and
converted to a package.
The curses module provides an interface to the curses library, the de-facto standard for portable advanced terminal handling.
While curses is most widely used in the Unix environment, versions are available for DOS, OS/2, and possibly other systems as well. This extension module is designed to match the API of ncurses, an open-source curses library hosted on Linux and the BSD variants of Unix.
The Demo/curses/ directory in the Python source distribution contains some example programs using the curses bindings provided by this module.
