Abstract This document describes how to write text-mode programs with Python 2.x, using the curses extension module to control the display. What is curses? The curses library supplies a terminal-independent screen-painting and keyboard-handling facility for text-based terminals; such terminals include VT100s, the Linux console, and the simulated terminal provided by X11 programs such as xterm and rxvt. Display terminals support various control codes to perform common operations such as moving the cursor, scrolling the screen, and erasing areas. Different terminals use widely differing codes, and often have their own minor quirks.

This module is based heavily on the TCCONIO package; the notes from the top of the source are as follows: Old Turbo-C CONIO.H compatibility library for LCC-Win32 and GCC/EGCS Mingw32 compilers. Version 1.0 (September 1999). Created by Daniel Guerrero Miralles (email@example.com). This source code is public domain.

Or, as Alex Martelli wrote in "Python in a nutshell": "The curses package works only on Unix-like platforms (there are persis- tent rumors of Windows ports of it, but I've never found a working one)." /Jorgen -- // Jorgen Grahn <jgrahn@ Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu \X/ algonet.se> R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn! <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
Copyright © 2002, Chris Gonnerman All Rights Reserved This package includes the package anycons, which implements a very simple screen I/O API for both Win32 and Unix. You need either a working curses installation or a working WConio installation for anycons to be useful. Other backends are certainly possible. Updates
