That was my thought originally when I included them but it may not be
necessary to have the ones from PDCurses in there.  I also noticed that
you have to include dos.h to get the functions you are using to compile so
I didn't think it should be necessary to include this file for the
pdcurses version.  Still, I am no PDCurses expert so if it would be better
to use your functions instead of those from PDCurses, I am all for it!

 The other question is about the makefile.wsl. You still

Oops, an oversite on my part.  That RAWDOSKEYHACK flag shouldn't be in

Um, that needs to be fixed!  I like the idea of making the keymap file
begin with the '_' character quite well.
