Is anyone working on a native version of Ncurses for Windows??

Try PDCurses:


It's 90% compatible with ncurses.

Yes, I'm aware of PDCurses.  I also question the 90% figure...

I can tell you that PDCurses doesn't compile on my Mac OS 10.4.3 machine out of the box :( This makes me somewhat concerned about its portability. Other things that concern me about PDCurses:

1. referring to X11 as an operating system (from http:// pdcurses.sourceforge.net/)

PDCurses is a public domain curses library for X11, Win32, DOS and OS/2, with most functions available in System V R4 curses. It supports most compilers on the above operating systems.

2. referring to C as an interpreted language ( from http:// sourceforge.net/projects/pdcurses )

Operating System: OS Independent (Written in an interpreted language)
