hscurses

NCurses bindings for Haskell https://github.com/skogsbaer/hscurses

Latest on Hackage:1.4.2.0

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.

hscurses -- A Haskell Binding to ncurses
=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+

hscurses is a Haskell binding to the ncurses library, a library of
functions that manage an application's display on character-cell
terminals. hscurses also provides some basic widgets implemented on
top of the ncurses binding, such as a text input widget and a table
widget.

The hscurses library has been reported to work on Linux x86 using GHC
6.12.1, 7.0.3 and 7.2.1.

Building and installing the hscurses library with GHC
-----------------------------------------------------

Requirements:

- GNU m4
- GHC >= 6.8
- ncurses

Build and installation steps:

runhaskell Setup.hs configure
runhaskell Setup.hs build
runhaskell Setup.hs install

In order to generate the API documentation, you need haddock
(http://www.haskell.org/haddock). The command is then:

runhaskell Setup.hs haddock

Using the hscurses library:
---------------------------

Just add the flag `-package hscurses' to the compiler flags. At the
moment, user documentation is only available through Haddock API
documentation.

Windows support:
----------------

Windows support relies on pdcurses (http://pdcurses.sourceforge.net/),
which is already packaged for MinGW
(http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files/MinGW/PDCurses/PDCurses-3.4-1/)
and can be installed with mingw-get.

Thanks to Jos�Romildo Malaquias (malaquias@gmail.com) for porting
hscurses to the windows platform!

History:
--------

John Meacham started the binding for his chat client Ginsu
(http://repetae.net/john/computer/ginsu/).

Tuomo Valkonen integrated to code into Riot
(http://modeemi.fi/~tuomov/riot/), with minor modifications.

Don Stewart improved the code for the Yi editor
(http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~dons/yi.html).

Stefan Wehr turned the binding into a standalone library. He also
added some basic widgets.
