FACT: wgetnstr() reads at most n
characters, thus preventing a possible overflow of the input
buffer. The user's erase and kill characters are inter-
preted, as well as any special keys (such as function keys,
HOME key, CLEAR key, etc.).
PROBLEM: this is not the case on my machine running solaris2.5, yet it
works fine on my linux box. using solaris, the backspace(erase) key is
not interpreted and instead of looping when it reaches n characters,
wgetnstr() simply exits. Has anyone encountered a similar problem?
Please let me know. I've invested many weeks in learning C and writing
this program, but this is one thing I cannot figure out. Thanx in advance.
