CURSES(3)               NetBSD Library Functions Manual              CURSES(3)

curses -- screen functions with ``optimal'' cursor motion
Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses)
cc [flags] files -lcurses [libraries]
These routines give the user a method of updating screens with reasonable optimization. They keep an image of the current screen, and the user sets up an image of a new one. Then the refresh() tells the routines to make the current screen look like the new one. In order to initialize the routines, the routine initscr() must be called before any of the other routines that deal with windows and screens are used. The routine endwin() should be called before exiting. The routine start_color() must be called before any of the other routines that deal with color are used.
