Text mode programming ain't dead yet!
Welcome to my NCurses support page, written specifically to support my book, The Programmer's Guide to NCurses, though anyone curious about NCurses is welcome.
Table of Contents
Here is a tar.gz file chock full of the book's source code. That's 238 files in two directories. The files in the book directory are from the chapter part of the book, named as mentioned in the book. The files in the book-ref directory are the sample files from the reference, named according to function.
Please let me know if anything is missing or wrong; my e-mail address can be found in the front of the book. Thanks!
* Here is a link to a page on using Python with NCurses courtesy of the Npyscreen python widget library and application framework.
* Here's a screen map for you! It can be used to help build menus or plot coordinates on a standard 80x24 screen. PDF format.
* NCruses Colors, hues, and other information. As the book is not in color I wasn't able to include color swatches for the various NCurses color commands. But, hey! The web is in color! So here are those swatches:
* It is possible to get more than the standard 8 (or 16) colors out of NCurses, but you must be using a compatible terminal and re-compile NCurses on your computer to include that full color support. Read more...
* A few of the books' figures were done originally in color. Sadly, it's not a four-color book. To see the images in their original color, lookee here.
