Synopsis

The ncurses test programs are used both for testing/demonstrating features of ncurses, as well as for occasional comparisons with other curses implementations.

History

A configure script was added to the test directory in 1996, to help test-builds with Unix versions. However, the script relied on files such as config.guess which were present in the ncurses tree but not in the test-directory.

Beginning with ncurses 5.8, the ncurses sources include make-tar.sh scripts for the Ada95 and test directories which may be used to generate tarballs of those directories which can build separately from the complete ncurses distribution.

Limitations

These programs work with ncurses, across several releases. For other curses implementations, they generally build properly, but expose differences between ncurses and other implementations.

Platforms

In preparing the release of ncurses 5.9, these gcc versions (as well as other compilers such as clang) and systems were used:
