I don't know why Pico fails to print my message but here it is:
I'm trying to write a very small program that doesn't use much memory
and don't want to call the standard curses library. I just need to use a
couple of functions from it so either want to write my own or to find a
mini-curses source that already does this. Can anybody give me any
hints, direct me to good books and/or source about this?
Thanks in advance.

Last year I developed a curses based program on my SUN IPC (Sunos 4.1.2).
Sunos 4.1.2 has a SysV version of curses, that is the version I used.
I recently tried to compile my program with the new SUN C compiler
(version 2.0.1 I think). The curses routines that come with this compiler
are BSD routines. BSD curses and SysV curses do not seem to be compatible.
The compilation crashed (unrecognized symbols being a glaring problem).
I logged into a Solaris 2.1 based SUN that also had the new Sun C compiler
installed, and it too had BSD curses.
I would like to know why Sun chose BSD curses for their C compiler. I
thought they would surely use SysV curses for Solaris 2.x, since it is
SysV based (or does SVR4 use BSD curses by default?).
Is the source for SysV curses available via anon ftp?
Thanks for any help you can send.
