Term::Screen version 1.06
=========================

This module provides a simple interface to the terminal control features
for character mode terminals.

INSTALLATION

This module will build in the usual way :

   perl Makefile.PL
   make
   make test
   make install

This last step may need to be done as a user with permission to write into
the Perl library directories - if you are not able to do this you may run
the first step with:

   perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/some/directory/you/can/write/to

And then run the rest of the procedure as usual - you will need to add
that path to @INC as described in the FAQ or in the manpage for the 'lib'
pragma.

As of the 1.04 release the original test.pl has been moved to the examples
directory as it wasn't really appropriate for a unit test.  You can of
course still run it to check this behaves as expected on your platform.


DEPENDENCIES

This module depends on version 1.01 or greater of Term::Cap - whilst this
module has been in the core Perl distribution for some years it had 
previously required a patch - 1.01 is available as part of the 5.7.2
development release (not intended for general release) and will be in
5.8.0 - it is hoped that 1.02 will be released to CPAN for those who
dont want to upgrade their version of Perl just now.

TO DO

Make a terminfo version of this so better function key support would be
built in.

Make an MS-DOS version and a MAC version and an OS/2 version and a VMS 
version, and ... so we can stop seeing "how can I read one char questions"

SUPPORT

Please contact the current maintainer of this module to report any bugs
