Hey guys,

I just wondered whether ncurses is officially classified as a gui or a tui? I know it can handle graphics but apparently its officially a tui. I just wanted to know the official word on the subject.

It supports tui's, but is not _itself_ a tui (just like the X Toolkit supports gui's - both are low-level libraries). The form/menu/panel libraries are somewhat higher-level.


P.S. Sorry if this isn't the right way of getting the answer to the question, but other forms of research are unverified!
