A (possible dumb) CURSES question

A (possible dumb) CURSES question

Post by Adam S. Moskowi » Sun, 02 Dec 1990 14:43:00

I've noticed that programs that use 'curses' seem to move the cursor to the
bottom of the screen before exiting.  When my multi-line prompt is output,
the top few lines scroll off the top of my screen.  When a program such as
'less' does this, I am forced to then type 'cat !$' if I needed to see what
the first n lines were.  IS THERE A WAY TO TELL CURSES TO NOT DO THIS?  If
so, how?  As usual, please email responses and I will post a summary.

1. EIDE support? (possible dumb question)

I'm looking at buying a Gateway 2000 Pentium Pro machine; but I'd like to
forgo SCSI.  Does FreeBSD support any EIDE hard drives?  I'm not sure what
the difference is betwixt IDE and EIDE at all.

Thanks for any pointers,
