off topic. looking for a sample how to handle text terminals

Post by Karl » Mon, 15 Mar 1999 04:00:00

because all of the packages available to purchase are mostly in english and
for the US i need to write a billing software in german language and fitting
the financial laws we have here. it should run on :

freebsd with text terminals / telnet and mysql as database. i think perl
with curses and dbi should be the environment.

now i am looking for a sample program to get my terminal/ database interface
as good as possible.

many thanks
