hello-ncurses

I'm working my way through Pradeep Padala's ncurses intro at: http://tldp.org/HOWTO/NCURSES-Programming-HOWTO/

Install for recent debian'ish distros:

wget http://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/ncurses/ncurses-5.7.tar.gz
gunzip ncurses*.gz
tar -xvf ncurses*.tar
cd ncurses*
./configure
make
sudo make install

"whereis ncurses" should now yield /usr/includes/ncurses.h

You should now be able to run something like ...

gcc hello.c -lncurses -o hello

... which will give you an executable to run from the command line.

:)
