Re: NCurses 4.1

Best thing is to replace the read's with Fgetchar's, for single-character
reads. This will return scancodes for terminal devices, and plain bytes
for other descriptors.


  if anyone is interested, I have compiled the new NCurses 4.1 for MiNT (it
  was really straightforward - just 'configure' and 'make').

  I have also patched it for TOS's VT52 emulator, so now curses based
  programs can run under TOS as well (you can check some funny test games at
  my WWW page).

  I can't post any diffs yet, because I have problems with 'read()' in
  MiNTlibs - it doesn't return scan codes of special keys (function and
  arrow keys). I have developed a workaround, but it looks ugly. If you have
  any clue how to solve it properly, please let me know, thanks.
