ncurses: update to 6.4.

   The   most  important  bug-fixes/improvements  dealt  with  robustness
   issues.  The  release notes also mention some other bug-fixes, but are
   focused  on  new  features and improvements to existing features since
   ncurses 6.3 release.

  Library improvements

    New features

   There are no new features in this release.

    Other improvements

   These are improvements to existing features:
     * modify  delscreen  to  more  effectively delete all windows on the
       given screen.
     * modify  wnoutrefresh  to  call  pnoutrefresh if its parameter is a
       pad,  rather than treating it as an error, and modify new_panel to
       permit its window-parameter to be a pad
     * modify  curses_trace()  to  show  the trace-mask as symbols, e.g.,
     * improve  checks  for valid mouse events when an intermediate mouse
       state is not part of the mousemask specified by the caller
     * allow extended-color number in opts parameter of wattr_on.
     * improve _tracecchar_t2 formatting of base+combining character.
     * trim  out some unwanted linker options from ncurses*config and .pc
       files seen in Fedora 36+.
     * improve shell-scripts with shellcheck
     * improve use of "trap" in shell scripts, using a script.
     * modify scripts to make timestamps more predictable.

   These are corrections to existing features:
     * modify  misc/  to  allow  for  the  case where the
       library  directory  does  not  yet  exist, since this is processed
       before doing an install
     * set trailing null on string passed from winsnstr to wins_nwstr.
     * modify  waddch_literal  to  allow  for double-width base character
       when merging a combining character

  Program improvements

   Several improvements were made to the utility programs:


          + rewrite  canonical_name  function of infocmp to ensure buffer
          + improve  readability  of  long parameterized expressions with
            the  infocmp  "-f"  option  by  allowing  split before a "%p"
          + modify   verbose-option   of  infocmp,  tic,  toe  to  enable
            debug-tracing if that is configured.

          limit tab-stop values to max-columns

          add   consistency   check   in   tic  for  u6/u7/u8/u9  and  NQ

          corrected use of original tty-modes in init/reset subcommands


   Along  with  the  library and utilities, improvements were made to the
   ncurses-examples.  Most  of  this  activity  aimed  at  improving  the
     * add  minimal  -h  (usage)  and  -V  (version)  getopt logic to all
       ncurses-examples programs.
     * fix an error in "@" command in test/ncurses.c F-menu
     * add curses_trace to ifdef's for START_TRACE in test/test.priv.h
     * improve pthread-configuration for test/worm.c
     * add setlocale call to several test-programs.
     * workaround  in  test/picsmap.c  for  use of floating point for rgb
       values by ImageMagick 6.9.11, which appears to use the wrong upper
     * use  static libraries for AdaCurses test-package for Mageia, since
       no gprbuild package is available.
     * install  Ada95  sample  programs  in  libexecdir, adding a wrapper
       script to invoke those.
     * install  ncurses-examples programs in libexecdir, adding a wrapper
       script to invoke those.

   There are other new demo/test programs and reusable examples:

          demonstrate combining characters

          demonstrate deleting a window

          observe  mouse  events  in  the  raw terminal or parsed ncurses

          demonstrate the unget_wch and unget functions

  Terminal database

   There are several new terminal descriptions:
     * mosh
     * mosh-256color
     * teken-16color
     * teken-sc
     * teken-vt
     * xgterm

   There  are  many  changes to existing terminal descriptions. Some were
   updates to several descriptions:
     * make description-fields distinct
     * fix errata in description fields
     * add/use several building-blocks:
          + aixterm+sl
          + ansi+cpr
          + apollo+vt132
          + decid+cpr
          + ncr260vp+sl
          + wyse+sl
          + x10term+sl
          + xterm+acs
          + xterm+alt47

   while  others  affected specific descriptions. These were retested, to
   take into account changes by their developers:
     * kitty
     * teken

   while  these are specific fixes based on reviewing documentation, user
   reports, or warnings from tic:

          amended note as per documentation for att610, att620, att730

   kon, kon2, jfbterm
          revise to undo "linux2.6" change to smacs/rmacs/enacs

          add dim, ecma+strikeout

          add xterm+sl-alt

          correct dsl in dec+sl

   mintty and tmux
          correct setal in mintty/tmux entries, add to vte-2018

          modify nsterm to use xterm+alt1049

          modify putty to use xterm+alt1049

          add blink and setal

   A few entries use extensions (user-defined terminal capabilities):
     * use  ansi+enq  and  decid+cpr in cases where the terminal probably
       supported the u6-u9 extension
     * remove u6-u9 from teken-2018
     * use  NQ  to flag entries where the terminal does not support query
       and response
     * add/use bracketed+paste to help identify terminals supporting this
       xterm feature
     * modify  samples  for xterm mouse 1002/1003 modes to use 1006 mode,
       and also provide for focus in/out responses
     * xterm  patch  #371 supports DEC-compatible status-line. add dec+sl
       to  xterm-new, per xterm #371, add xterm-p371, add xterm-p370, for
       use  in  older  terminals, and set "xterm-new" to "xterm-p370" (to
       ease adoption).


   As usual, this release
     * improves documentation by describing new features,
     * attempts  to  improve the description of features which users have
       found confusing
     * fills  in overlooked descriptions of features which were described
       in the NEWS file but treated sketchily in manual pages.

   In  addition  to  providing  background  information  to explain these
   features   and   show   how   they  evolved,  there  are  corrections,
   clarifications, etc.:
     * Corrections:
          + remove a stray '/' from description of %g in terminfo(5).
          + correct/improve  font-formatting in curs_getch.3x, as well as
            other manual pages.
     * New/improved history and portability sections:
          + add portability notes for delscreen and delwin in manual.
          + improve curs_slk.3x discussion of extensions and portability
     * Other improvements:
          + improve  curs_bkgd.3x,  explaining  that  bkgdset  can affect
            results for bkgd
          + add note on portable memory-leak checking in curs_memleaks.3x
          + expanded description in resizeterm.3x
          + add  section  on  releasing  memory  to  curs_termcap.3x  and
            curs_terminfo.3x manpages.
          + add  clarification  of  the  scope  of  dynamic  variables in
          + improve formatting of ncurses-intro.html and hackguide.html
          + improve curs_clear.3x links to other pages
          + update  ncurses-howto,  making documentation fixes along with
            corrections to example programs.
          + use  newer  version  1.36 of gnathtml for generating Ada html
          + update external links in Ada95.html

   There  are  no new manual pages (all of the manual page updates are to
   existing pages).

  Interesting bug-fixes

   While  there  were  many bugs fixed during development of ncurses 6.4,
   only  a  few  (the  reason  for  this release) were both important and
   interesting. Most of the bug-fixes were for local issues which did not
   affect  compatibility across releases. Since those are detailed in the
   NEWS file no elaboration is needed here.

   The  interesting  bugs were those dealing with memory leaks and buffer
   overflows.  Although  the utilities are designed for text files (which
   they do properly), some choose to test them with non-text files.
     * Text  files  contain  no  embedded  nulls.  Also,  they end with a
       newline.  Feeding tic non-text files exposed a few cases where the
       program  did  not  check  for  those  issues. As a result, further
       processing  of the input found limit-checks whose assumptions were
     * Fixing  the limit-checks (first) found a problem with tic managing
       the  list  of  strings  in  a terminal description. In merging two
       terminal  descriptions  (i.e.,  the  "use="  feature), tic was not
       allocating  a  complete copy. A quick repair for that introduced a
       memory leak.
     * The  checks  for non-text files are improved (i.e., embedded nulls
       in  the  input  file  will  cause  tic  to  reject  it rather than
       attempting to process it).
     * The string allocations in tic are likewise improved.

  Configuration changes

    Major changes

   There  are  no  major  changes.  No  new  options  were added. Several
   improvements were made to configure checks.

    Configuration options

   There are a few new/modified configure options:

          add ABI 7 defaults to configure script.

          add   warning   in  configure  script  if  file  specified  for
          "--with-caps" does not exist.

          bzip2 and xz compression are now supported

          add    check/warning    in    configure    script   if   option
          "--with-xterm-kbs" is missing or inconsistent


   Many  of  the  portability  changes  are implemented via the configure
     * amend  configure option's auto-search to account for systems where
       none of the directories known to pkg-config exist
     * corrected regex needed for older pkg-config used in Solaris 10
     * improve  handling of --with-pkg-config-libdir option, allowing for
       the case where either $PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR or the option value has a
       colon-separated list of directories
     * if   the   --with-pkg-config-libdir   option  is  not  given,  use
       ${libdir}/pkgconfig as a default
     * improve search-path check for pkg-config, e.g., for Debian testing
       which installs pkg-config with architecture-prefixes.
     * build-fix for cross-compiling to MingW, conditionally add -lssp
     * improve configure check for getttynam
     * fixes to build with dietlibc:
          + add configure check for fpathconf
          + add   configure   check   for  math  sine/cosine,  needed  in
            test/tclock, and eliminate pow() from test/hanoi
          + use wcsnlen as an alternative to wmemchr if it is not found
     * modify  configure macro CF_BUILD_CC to check if the build-compiler
       works,  rather  than that it is different from the cross-compiler,
       e.g.,  to  accommodate  a  compiler  which  can be used for either
       purpose with different flags
     * modify  configure/scripts  to work around interference by GNU grep

   Here are some of the other portability fixes:
     * change  man_db.renames  to  template,  to  handle  ncurses*-config
       script with the --extra-suffix configure option.
     * update   CF_XOPEN_SOURCE  macro,  adding  variants  "gnueabi"  and
       "gnueabihf" to get _DEFAULT_SOURCE special case, as well as adding
       GNU  libc  suffixes for "abi64", "abin32", "x32" to distinguish it
       from other libc flavors.
     * work  around  musl's  nonstandard  use  of  feature test macros by
       adding  a  definition  for NCURSES_WIDECHAR to the generated ".pc"
       and *-config files.
     * use  "command  -v"  rather than "type" in Ada95/gen/ to
       fix a portability issue.

Run the built tic with the built libncurses, not the installed one, as
the build system intends (but fails) to do. This fixes "make package",
for instance, when tic needs to use a newly provided symbol.

This fix applies to fewer dynamic linkers than ${WRKSRC}/misc/shlib --
not the macOS dyld, for instance -- so making the provided script work
as intended will be more widely effective than this patch.

ncurses: Simplify handling of TOOLS_TBL.

Don't try to handle obscure cases where certain parts of curses are builtin,
historically it has been shown to lead to failures and a growing list of
special cases.  Just disable completely if native tbl(1) is not available.

Fixes latest issue seen by sjmulder on OpenIndiana.

	+ modify form library to optionally delay cursor movement on a field
	  edge/boundary (patch by Leon Winter).
	+ modify form library to avoid unnecessary update of cursor position in
	  non-public fields (patch by Leon Winter).
	+ remove unused _nc_import_termtype2() function.
	+ also add/improve null-pointer checks in other places
	+ add a null-pointer check in _nc_parse_entry to handle an error when
	  a use-name is invalid syntax (report by Chung-Yi Lin).

	+ clarify in manual pages that vwprintw and vwscanw are obsolete,
	  not part of X/Open Curses since 2007.
	+ use "const" in some prototypes rather than NCURSES_CONST where X/Open
	  Curses was updated to do this, e.g., wscanw, newterm, the terminfo
	  interface.  Also use "const" for consistency in the termcap
	  interface, which was withdrawn by X/Open Curses in Issue 5 (2007).
	  As of Issue 7, X/Open Curses still lacks "const" for certain return
	  values, e.g., keyname().

	+ improve terminfo write/read by modifying the fourth item of the
	  extended header to denote the number of valid strings in the extended
	  string table (prompted by a comment in unibilium's sources).

	+ amend Scaled256() macro in test/picsmap.c to cover the full range
	  0..1000 (report by Roger Pau Monne).
	+ add some checks in tracemunch for undefined variables.
	+ trim some redundant capabilities from st-0.7 -TD
	+ trim unnecessary setf/setb from interix -TD

	+ fix a check in infotocap which may not have detected a problem when
	  it should have.
	+ add a check in tic for the case where setf/setb are given using
	  different strings, but provide identical results to setaf/setab.
	+ further improve fix for terminfo.5 (patch by Kir Kolyshkin).
	+ reorder loop-limit checks in winsnstr() in case the string has no
	  terminating null and only the number of characters is used (patch
	  by Gyorgy Jeney).

	+ modify TurnOn/TurnOff macros in lib_vidattr.c and lib_vid_attr.c to
	  avoid expansion of "CUR" in trace.
	+ improve a few lintian warnings in test-packages.
	+ modify lib_setup to avoid calling pthread_self() without first
	  verifying that the address is valid, i.e., for weak symbols
	  (report/patch by Werner Fink).
	+ modify generated terminfo.5 to not use "expand" and related width
	  on the last column of tables, making layout on wide terminals look
	  better (adapted from patch by Kir Kolyshkin).
	+ add a category to report_offsets, e.g., "w" for wide-character, "t"
	  for threads to make the report more readable.  Reorganized the
	  structures reported to make the categories more apparent.
	+ simplify some ifdef's for extended-colors.
	+ add NCURSES_GLOBALS and NCURSES_PRESCREEN to report_offsets, to show
	  how similar the different tinfo configurations are.

	+ modify _nc_resolve_uses2() to detect incompatible types when merging
	  a "use=" clause of extended capabilities.  The problem was seen in a
	  defective terminfo integrated from simpleterm sources in 20171111,
	  compounded by repair in 20180121.
	+ correct Ss/Ms interchange in st-0.7 entry (tmux #1264) -TD
	+ fix remaining flash capabilities with trailing mandatory delays -TD
	+ correct cut/paste in NEWS (report by Sven Joachim).

	+ remove incorrect free() from 20170617 changes (report by David Macek).
	+ correct type for "U8" in user_caps.5; it is a number not boolean.
	+ add a null-pointer check in safe_sprintf.c (report by Steven Noonan).
	+ improve fix for Debian #882620 by reusing limit2 variable (report by
	  Julien Cristau, Sven Joachim).

	+ modify misc/ to install/uninstall explicit list in case
	  the build-directory happens to have no ".pc" files when an uninstall
	  is performed (report by Jeffrey Walton).
	+ deprecate safe-sprintf, since the vsnprintf function, which does what
	  was needed, was standardized long ago.
	+ add several development/experimental options to development packages.
	+ minor reordering of options in configure script to make the threaded
	  and reentrant options distinct from the other extensions which are
	  normally enabled.

	+ minor fixes to test/*.h to make them idempotent.
	+ add/use test/parse_rgb.h to show how the "RGB" capability works.
	+ add a clarification in user_caps.5 regarding "RGB" capability.
	+ add extended_slk_color{,_sp} symbols to the appropriate
	  package/*.{map,sym} files (report by Sven Joachim, cf: 20170401).

	+ update "VERSION" file, used in shared-library naming.

Update to 6.0:

   This  release  is  designed  to  be source-compatible with ncurses 5.0
   through  5.9;  providing  a  new  application  binary interface (ABI).
   Although  the  source can still be configured to support the ncurses 5
   ABI,  the  intent  of  the  release is to provide extensions which are
   generally useful, but binary-incompatible with ncurses 5:
     * Extend  the  cchar_t  structure to allow more than 16 colors to be
     * Modify  the  encoding  of mouse state to make room for a 5th mouse
       button.  That  allows  one  to use ncurses with a wheel mouse with
       xterm or similar X terminal emulators.

   There are, of course, numerous other improvements, including
     * fixes made based on the Clang and Coverity static analyzers.
     * memory leak fixes using Valgrind

   The  release  notes  mention  some  bug-fixes,  but are focused on new
   features  and  improvements to existing features log since ncurses 5.9

   While  the intent of the release is to provide a new stable ABI, there
   are other development activities which are summarized below.
     * The  original  release  plan,  e.g., for "5.10" was to improve the
       MinGW port. Ultimately that was completed (wide-character support,
       mouse,  etc),  but  was  deferred  to focus on termcap support and
       performance  issues.  Also, pinpointing the problems with Console2
       took a while.
     * A  review  of  termcap  compatibility in 2011 led to several minor
       fixes  in  the  library  and improvements to utilities. To do this
       properly,  a  review of the various extent termcap implementations
       was needed.
       The [11]termcap library checker (tctest) (not part of ncurses) was
       one    result.    A   followup   review   of   performance   using
       [12]ncurses-examples in 2014 led to additional improvements.
     * Output buffering provided a further, but worthwhile distraction. A
       bug  report  in  2012  regarding  the  use  of  signal handlers in
       ncurses)  pointed  out  [13]a  problem  with  the  use  of  unsafe
       functions  for  handling SIGTSTP. Other signals could be addressed
       with workarounds; repairing SIGTSTP required a different approach.
       The  solution  required changing internal behavior of the library:
       how it handles output buffering.
       Now  ncurses buffers its own output, independently of the standard
       output.  A few applications relied upon the library's direct reuse
       of  the  standard  output  buffering;  however that is unspecified
       behavior  and  has  never been a recommended practice. Identifying
       these  applications  as  well  as  refining  the  change to permit
       low-level applications to work consistently took time.
     * Since  the introduction of the experimental support for 256 colors
       early  in  [14]2005  (released in [15]ncurses 5.5), there has been
       increased  user  interest. Almost all packagers continue providing
       the ncurses ABI 5 which cannot support 256 colors.
     * Symbol  versioning,  or  the  lack  of  it in ncurses, is the main
       reason why packagers would be reluctant to add a new ncurses ABI.
       This  release  provides  the  new  ABI along with script-generated
       lists  of versioned symbols which can be used for both ABI 5 and 6
       (with  distinct names to keep the two separate). This took time to
       development, as reported in [16]Symbol versioning in ncurses.

  Library improvements

  Output buffering

   X/Open curses provides more than one initialization function:
     * [17]initscr (the simplest) accepts no parameters.
     * [18]newterm accepts parameters for the stream input and output
     * [19]setupterm (the low-level function) accepts a parameter for the
       file descriptor of the output.

   They are documented in X/Open as if initscr calls newterm using stdout
   for   output  stream,  and  in  turn  newterm  calls  setupterm  using
   fileno(stdout)  for  the file descriptor. As long as an implementation
   acts  as if it does this, it conforms. In practice, implementations do
   what  is  implied.  This  creates  a  problem: the low-level setupterm
   function's  file  descriptor  is  unbuffered,  while  newterm  implies
   buffered  output.  X/Open  Curses says that all output is done through
   the  file  descriptor,  and  does  not  say  how  the output stream is
   actually used.

   Initially,  ncurses used the file descriptor (obtained from the output
   stream  passed to newterm) for changing the terminal modes, and relied
   upon  the  output  parameter of newterm for buffered output. Later (to
   avoid  using  unsafe  buffered  I/O  in  signal handlers), ncurses was
   modified  to use the file descriptor (unbuffered output) when cleaning
   up  on receipt of a signal. Otherwise (when not handling a signal), it
   continued to use the buffered output.

   That  approach  worked reasonably well and as a side effect, using the
   same buffered output as an application might use for printf meant that
   no   flushing   was   needed   when   switching  between  normal-  and

   There were a couple of problems:
     * to get good performance, curses (not only ncurses, but SVr4 curses
       in general) set an output buffer using setbuf or similar function.
       There  is no standard (or portable) way to turn that output buffer
       off,  and  revert  to  line-buffering.  The  [20]NCURSES_NO_SETBUF
       environment variable did make it optional.
     * to  handle SIGTSTP (the "stop" signal), ncurses relied upon unsafe
       functions.  That  is,  due  to  the  complexity of the feature, it
       relied  upon reusing existing functions which should not have been
       called via the signal handler.

   Conveniently, solving the second problem (by making ncurses do its own
   output  buffering)  also  fixed  the first one. But there were special
   cases to resolve: [21]low-level functions such as mvcur, putp, vidattr
   explicitly  use  the  standard  output.  Those  functions  were reused
   internally, and required modification to distinguish whether they were
   used by the high-level or low-level interfaces.

   Finally, there may still be a few programs which should be modified to
   improve their portability, e.g., adding an


   when  switching  from "[22]shell" mode to "[23]program" (curses) mode.
   Those are fairly rare because most programmers have learned not to mix
   printf and [24]printw.

  Symbol versioning

   This  release  introduces symbol-versioning to ncurses because without
   it,  the  change of ABI would be less successful. A lengthy discussion
   will  be  presented  in  [25]Symbol versioning in ncurses. These notes
   summarize what has changed, and what can be done with the new release.

   Symbol-versioning  allows  the  developers  of  a library to mark each
   public  symbol  (both  data and functions) with an identifier denoting
   the  library  name  and  the  version for which it was built. By doing
   this, users of the library have a way to help ensure that applications
   do not accidentally load an incompatible library. In addition, private
   symbols can be hidden entirely.

   This   release   provides   sample   files   for  the  four  principal
   configurations  of  ncurses libraries: ncurses, ncursesw, ncursest and
   ncursestw. Each sample is given in two forms:

          These list all public symbols, together with version names.

          These list all public symbols, without version names.

   The  sample  files  are generated by scripts which take into account a
   few special cases such as [26]tack to omit many of the ncurses private
   symbols  (beginning with "_nc_"). Here are counts of globals versus

      Config   Symbols Globals Locals "_nc_"
     ncurses       976     796    180    332
     ncursesw     1089     905    184    343
     ncursest      979     804    175    358
     ncursestw    1098     914    184    372

   Although only four sample configurations are presented, each is formed
   by  merging  symbols  from  several  combinations  of configure-script
   options, taking into account advice from downstream packagers. Because
   they  are  formed by merging, the sample files may list a symbol which
   is  not  in  a  given package. That is expected. The samples have been
   tested  and  are  working  with  systems  (such as Fedora, FreeBSD and
   Debian)  which  fully  support  this  feature. There are other systems
   which  do  not  support the feature, and a few (such as Solaris) which
   provide incomplete support.

   The  version-naming convention used allows these sample files to build
   distinct libraries for ABI 5 and 6. Version names consist of
     * configuration   name,  e.g.,  "NCURSESW"  for  the  wide-character
     * ABI version (if not 5)
     * library  name  for two special cases which have the same interface
       across configurations: "TINFO" and "TIC"
     * release version
     * patch date (for the release version)

   As  a special case, this release (which makes the final change for ABI
   5) is marked with release version 5.9 and patch date 20150530.


   The new release has several improvements for performance and building.
   For instance:
     * several  files  in ncurses- and progs-directories were modified to
       allow  const  data used in internal tables to be put by the linker
       into the readonly text segment.
     * various improvements were made to building the Ada95 binding, both
       in simplifying the generated files as well as improving the way it
       uses gnatmake

   There are also new features in the libraries:
     * added [27]use_tioctl function
     * added  [28]wgetdelay  to  retrieve  _delay  member of WINDOW if it
       happens to be opaque, e.g., in the pthread configuration.
     * added [29]A_ITALIC extension.
     * added  form  library  extension [30]O_DYNAMIC_JUSTIFY option which
       can  be  used to override the different treatment of justification
       for static versus dynamic fields .
     * rewrote  [31]putwin  and  [32]getwin,  making  an extended version
       which  is  capable of reading screen-dumps between the wide/normal
       ncurses  configurations.  These are text files, except for a magic
       code at the beginning:

0       string          \210\210        Screen-dump (ncurses)

     * several changes to mouse support include:
          + added decoder for xterm SGR 1006 mouse mode.
          + added experimental support for "%u" format to terminfo.
          + improved  behavior  of  wheel-mice for xterm protocol: noting
            that  there  are only button-presses for buttons "4" and "5",
            so   there  is  no  need  to  wait  to  combine  events  into
            double-clicks .

   There   are   a   few  new  configure  options  dealing  with  library
     * add "--enable-ext-putwin" configure option to turn on the extended
       putwin/getwin.  By default, this is enabled for ABI 6 and disabled
       with ABI 5.
     * add  "--enable-string-hacks" option to control whether strlcat and
       strlcpy  may  be  used. Because ncurses already does the requisite
       buffer-limit  checks,  this feature is mainly of interest to quiet
       compiler-warnings on a few systems.
     * add  configure  option  "--with-tparm-arg"  to  allow  [33]tparm's
       parameters  to  be  something more likely to be the same size as a
       pointer, e.g., intptr_t (again, the default is set for ABI 6).

  Program improvements


   Most of the termcap-related changes based on development of [34]tctest
   (termcap  library  checker)  are  implemented  in  the tic and infocmp
   programs   rather   than  affecting  the  library.  As  noted  in  the
   [35]discussion  of  tctest,  ncurses's  ability  to  translate between
   terminfo and termcap formats has been improved at different times, but
   subject  to  feedback from "real" termcap users. There are very few of
   those.  Nowadays,  virtually  all  termcap users are using ncurses (or
   NetBSD, with its own terminfo library) and their programs are actually
   using terminfo rather than termcap data.

   Still,  there  are a few. A comment about the translation of the ASCII
   NUL character prompted a review:
     * Both   terminfo   and   termcap   store   string  capabilities  as
       NUL-terminated strings.
     * In terminfo, a \0 in a terminal description is stored as \200.
     * There are no (known) terminals which would behave differently when
       sent \0 or \200.
     * When  translating  to  terminfo  format (or displaying a printable
       version of an entry using infocmp), ncurses shows \200 as \0.
     * It has done this since 1998 (quoting from the NEWS file):

        + modify _nc_tic_expand() to generate \0 rather than \200.
        + correct translation of terminfo "^@", to \200, like \0.

     * However,  the  _nc_tic_expand  function (which optionally produces
       terminfo  or termcap format) did not address this special case for
       termcap.  Even  the  later  4.4BSD  [37]cgetstr  interprets  a  \0
       literally,  ending  that  string  (rather  than using the terminfo

   As  a  result of the review, several improvements were made to ncurses
   translation to/from termcap format -- and improving the checks made in
   tic  for  consistency  of  entries.  Most  of these are not of general
   interest, except for two new command-line options for tic and infocmp:
     * the  "-0"  option  generates  termcap/terminfo  source on a single
     * the  "-K"  option  provides stricter BSD-compatibility for termcap

   Other user-visible improvements and new features include:
     * added  "-D"  option  to  tic  and  infocmp,  to  show the database
       locations that it could use.
     * added "-s" option to toe, to sort its output.
     * extended  "-c" and "-n" options of infocmp to allow comparing more
       than two entries.
     * modified  toe's report when "-a" and "-s" options are combined, to
       add a column showing which entries belong to a given database.
     * modified  the clear program to take into account the "E3" extended
       capability to clear the terminal's scrollback buffer.


   Along  with  the library and utilities, many improvements were made to
   the  [38]ncurses-examples.  Some  were  made  to  allow  building (and
   comparison-testing) against NetBSD curses and PDCurses. Both lack some
   of  the  X/Open Curses features, necessitating customization. But this
   activity  was  useful  because  it  showed  some remaining performance
   issues (which have been resolved in this release).

   These changes were made to verify compatibility or compare performance
   of ncurses:
     * made  workarounds  for compiling test-programs with NetBSD curses,
       though it lacks some common functions such as [39]use_env.
     * added dots_termcap test-program
     * added  dots_curses test-program, for comparison with the low-level
     * added   test_setupterm  test-proram  to  demonstrate  normal/error
       returns from the setupterm and restartterm functions.
     * added  "-d",  "-e"  and  "-q"  options  to  the  demo_terminfo and
       demo_termcap test-programs.
     * added   "-y"   option   to   demo_termcap  and  test/demo_terminfo
       test-programs   to   demonstrate  behavior  with/without  extended
     * modified  demo_termcap  and  demo_terminfo  test-programs  to make
       their  options  more  directly  comparable, and add "-i" option to
       specify  a  terminal  description  filename  to parse for names to
     * rewrote   the  tests  for  [40]mvderwin  and  test  for  recursive
       [41]mvwin in the movewindow test-program.

   These changes were made to help with the MinGW port:
     * added   test-screens   to   the   ncurses   test-program  to  show
       256-characters at a time, to help with MinGW port.
     * modified the view test-program to load UTF-8 when built with MinGW
       by  using  regular win32 API because the MinGW functions mblen and
       mbtowc do not work.
     * added "-s" option to the view test-program to allow it to start in
       single-step mode, reducing size of trace files when it is used for
       debugging MinGW changes.

   These changes were made to verify new extensions in ncurses:
     * added   [42]form_driver_w   entrypoint   to  wide-character  forms
       library, as well as form_driver_w test-program.
     * modified  ncurses  test-program's  b/B tests to display lines only
       for  the  attributes which a given terminal supports, to make room
       for an italics test.
     * modified  ncurses  test-program,  adding  "-E" and "-T" options to
       demonstrate use_env versus use_tioctl.
     * modified ncurses test-program's c/C tests to cycle through subsets
       of   the   total   number   of   colors,   to   better  illustrate
       8/16/88/256-colors by providing directly comparable screens.
     * modified the ncurses test-program to also show position reports in
       'a' test.

   These changes were made to make the examples more useful:
     * added scripts for building dpkg and rpm test-packages
     * modified  the  hanoi  test-program  to  show the minimum number of
       moves possible for the given number of tiles.
     * modified  the  knight  test-program  to show the number of choices
       possible for each position in automove option, e.g., to allow user
       to follow Warnsdorff's rule to solve the puzzle.

  Terminal database

   This  release  provides  improvements  to  tic's "-c" checking option,
   which was used for example to
     * make sgr in several entries agree with other caps.
     * correct  padding  in  some  entries  where  earlier  versions  had
       miscounted the number of octal digits.

   There are several new terminal descriptions:
     * [43]mlterm is now aliased to mlterm3
     * [44]nsterm is now derived from nsterm-256color
     * [45]putty-sco
     * [46]teken is FreeBSD's "xterm" console.
     * [47]terminator
     * [48]terminology
     * [49]tmux is derived from screen.
     * several  screen.XXX  entries support the respective variations for
       256 colors.
     * [50]simpleterm is now 0.5
     * [51]vte is aliased to vte-2012
     * [52]vt520ansi

   A few entries use extensions (user-defined terminal capabilities):
     * E3,  used  in  linux,  putty  and  xterm-basic  is  tested  in the
       [53]clear program to erase a terminal's scrollback.
     * TS  is  used  in the [54]xterm+sl building block to help deprecate
       the misuse of tsl for xterm's title-string.
     * XT  is  used  in  some  terminfo entries to improve usefulness for
       other  applications  than screen, which would like to pretend that
       xterm's title is a status-line.
     * xm  is  used  in  examples  [55]xterm-1005  and  [56]xterm-1006 to
       illustrate a way to make mouse handling more general

   A   few   terminals   support  italics  and/or  dim  capabilities.  In
   particular,  screen  does  not.  Documented that, and accommodated the
   terminals where this feature works with the A_ITALIC extension.
     * konsole, mlterm3 (italics)
     * nsterm (dim)
     * screen (dim)
     * vte (dim, italics)
     * xterm (dim, italics)


   As usual, this release
     * improves documentation by describing new features,
     * attempts  to  improve the description of features which users have
       found confusing
     * fills  in overlooked descriptions of features which were described
       in the [57]NEWS file but treated sketchily in manual pages.

   In  addition,  the  mechanism  for  producing  HTML  versions  of  the
   documentation has been improved:
     * use an improved version of [58]man2html to generate html manpages.
     * regenerated  [59]NCURSES-Programming-HOWTO.html to fix some of the
       broken html emitted by docbook.

  Interesting bug-fixes

     * Ada95 binding:
          + modify  makefile  rules  to ensure that the PIC option is not
            used when building a static library
          + make  Ada95  build-fix  for  big-endian architectures such as
            sparc.  This undoes one of the fixes from [60]20110319, which
            added an "Unused" member to representation clauses, replacing
            that with pragmas to suppress warnings about unused bits.
     * Color and attributes:
          + parenthesize  parameter  of  COLOR_PAIR  and  PAIR_NUMBER  in
            curses.h in case it happens to be a comma-expression.
          + improve  [61]20021221  workaround  for broken acs, handling a
            case  where  that ACS_xxx character is not in the acsc string
            but there is a known wide-character which can be used.
          + modify  [62]init_pair  to  accept  -1's for color value after
            [63]assume_default_colors has been called.
          + add  a  check  in [64]start_color to limit color-pairs to 256
            when extended colors are not supported.
     * Resizing the screen:
          + propagate  error-returns  from  wresize,  i.e.,  the internal
            increase_size    and    decrease_size    functions    through
          + add  check  for  zero/negative  dimensions for resizeterm and
          + modify  resizeterm to always push a KEY_RESIZE onto the fifo,
            even  if  screensize  is  unchanged. Modify library to push a
            KEY_RESIZE  if there was a SIGWINCH, even if it does not call
            resizeterm).   These  changes  eliminate  the  case  where  a
            SIGWINCH  is  received,  but  ERR  is returned from wgetch or
            wgetnstr because the screen dimensions did not change.
     * Low-level interfaces
          + fix  an old bug in the termcap emulation; "%i" was ignored in
            tparm  because  the parameters to be incremented were already
            on the internal stack.
          + change  "%l" behavior in tparm to push the string length onto
            the  stack  rather  than saving the formatted length into the
            output buffer.
          + modify  name-comparison  for  tgetstr,  etc.,  to accommodate
            legacy  applications  as well as to improve compatbility with
            BSD 4.2 termcap implementations (see note for [66]980725).
     * High-level interfaces
          + modify internal recursion in wgetch which handles cooked mode
            to  check if the call to wgetnstr returned an error. This can
            happen  when  both nocbreak and nodelay are set, for instance
            (see note for [67]960418).
          + add a check in internal function waddch_nosync to ensure that
            tab characters are treated as control characters; some broken
            locales claim they are printable.
          + modify  menu  library  to  ensure  that  a  menu's top-row is
            adjusted  as needed to ensure that the current item is on the
          + fix  special  case  where double-width character overwrites a
            single- width character in the first column.

  Configuration changes

    Major changes

   The ncurses 6.0 configure script makes changes to the default value of
   several  configure options, depending on the --with-abi-version option
   (i.e., whether its value is "5" or "6"):

          Feature  introduced  in  [68]970405  supports  the use of const
          where  X/Open  Curses  should  have, but did not. NetBSD curses
          does something similar with const.

          Extends  the  cchar_t structure to allow more than 16 colors to
          be   encoded.   This   applies   only   to  the  wide-character
          (--enable-widec) configuration.

          Modifies  the  encoding  of  mouse state to make room for a 5th
          mouse button. That allows one to use ncurses with a wheel mouse
          with xterm or similar X terminal emulators.

          Modifies  the  file-format  written  by putwin to use printable
          text  rather  than binary files, allowing getwin to read screen
          dumps  written by differently-configured ncurses libraries. The
          extended  getwin  can  still  read binary screen dumps from the
          same  configuration  of  ncurses.  This does not change the ABI
          (the binary interface seen by calling applications).

          Modifies  the  FIELDTYPE structure used for the form library to
          make it more generic.

          Allows  an  application  to  define _LP64 to declare chtype and
          mmask_t  as  simply "unsigned" rather than the configured types
          using the --with-chtype and --with-mmask_t options.

          Compile-in support for extended functions which accept a SCREEN
          pointer,  reducing  the  need  for juggling the global SP value
          with [69]set_term and [70]delscreen.

          Makes chtype explicitly a 32-bit unsigned value.

          Makes mmask_t explicitly a 32-bit unsigned value.

          X/Open  Curses  declares  [71]tparm  using long for each of the
          parameters  aside  from  the  formatting string, presuming that
          long  and  char*  are the same size. This configure option uses
          intptr_t which provides a better guarantee of the sizes.

   The  configure  script  no longer checks for antique compilers; c89 is
   assumed  as  a  minimum. There are a few features from later revisions
   which  are  used  when available. The configure script makes checks to
   turn on useful warnings from clang, gcc and icc. You should be able to
   build  ncurses  6.0  with  any  of  the  current (or not so current) C
   compilers available in 2015.

   The configure script, by the way, makes changes which do not work with
   systems  whose  /bin/sh is non-POSIX. This mainly affects Solaris (the
   other  vendor  unix systems have followed the POSIX guidelines for the
   past  twenty  years).  If  you  must  build  on  Solaris, its [72]xpg4
   binaries suffice, e.g.,

     WHAT=`hostname|sed -e 's/\..*//'`
     cat >>$OUT <<EOF/
     ** `date`
     ** node: $WHAT
     ** user: `id`
     ** conf: $*

     if test -f /usr/xpg4/bin/sh
             export CONFIG_SHELL

     rm -f config.status config.cache
     $SHELL ./configure --verbose \
             --disable-echo \
             --disable-overwrite \
             --enable-warnings \
             --with-warnings \
             --prefix=$TOP $* 2>&1 | tee -a $OUT

   Other major changes to the configure script include:
     * ABI 6 is now the default, intending that the existing ABI 5 should
       build as before using the "--with-abi-version=5" option.
     * added   --with-extra-suffix   option   to   help  with  installing
       nonconflicting  ncurses6  packages,  e.g.,  avoiding  header-  and
       NOTE: as a side-effect, this renames

     adacurses-config to adacurses5-config and
     adacursesw-config to adacursesw5-config
     * the  configure  script  looks  for gnatgcc if the Ada95 binding is
       built,  in  preference  to  the  default  gcc/cc.  The script also
       ensures  that  the  Ada95  binding  is  built  with  the  level of
       optimization as the C libraries.
     * the  configure script captures define's related to -D_XOPEN_SOURCE
       from  the  configure check and adds those to the *-config and *.pc
       files, to simplify use for the wide-character libraries.

The "rename" rule is a published synonym for the "opt" transform rule, however
only the latter is supported by cwrappers.  Change them all to "opt" rules for
consistency and to gain compatibility with cwrappers.

Update to 5.7:

New features and improvements:

    * library
	  o new flavor of the ncurses library provides rudimentary
	  support for POSIX threads. Several functions are reentrant,
	  but most require either a window-level or screen-level
	    (This is API-compatible, but not ABI-compatible with
	    the normal library).
	  o add NCURSES_OPAQUE symbol to curses.h, will use to make
	  structs opaque in selected configurations.
	  to curses.h to make it simpler to tell if the extended
	  functions and/or colors are declared.
          o add wresize to C++ binding
          o eliminate fixed-buffer vsprintf calls in C++ binding.
	  o add several functions to C++ binding which wrap C
	  functions that pass a WINDOW* parameter.
          o adapt mouse-handling code from menu library in form-library
          o improve tracing for form library, showing created forms, fields, etc.
          o make $NCURSES_NO_PADDING feature work for termcap interface .
	  o add check to trace-file open, if the given name is a
	  directory, add ".log" to the name and try again.
	  o several new manpages: curs_legacy.3x, curs_memleaks.3x,
	  curs_opaque.3x and curs_threads.3x
    * programs:
	  o modified three test-programs to demonstrate the threading
	  support in this version: ditto, rain, worm.
	  o several new test-programs: demo_panels, dots_mvcur,
	  inch_wide, inchs, key_name, key_names, savescreen, test_arrays, test_get_wstr, test_getstr,
	  test_instr, test_inwstr and test_opaque.
	  o add adacurses-config to the Ada95 install.
	  o modify tic -f option to format spaces as \s to prevent
	  them from being lost when that is read back in unformatted
	  o The tack program is now distributed separately from
    * terminal database
          o added entries:
                + Eterm-256color, Eterm-88color and rxvt-88color
                + aterm
                + konsole-256color
                + mrxvt
                + screen.mlterm
                + screen.rxvt
		+ teraterm4.59 is now the primary primary teraterm
		entry, renamed original to teraterm2.3
                + 9term terminal
                + Newbury Data entries
          o updated/improved entries:
                + gnome to version 2.22.3
                + h19, z100
                + konsole to version 1.6.6
                + mlterm, mlterm+pcfkeys
		+ xterm, and building-blocks for function-keys to
		xterm patch #230.

Major bug fixes:

    * add logic to tic for cancelling strings in user-defined
    capabilities (this is needed for current konsole terminfo
    * modify mk-1st.awk so the generated makefile rules for linking
    or installing shared libraries do not first remove the library,
    in case it is in use, e.g., by /bin/sh.
    * correct check for notimeout in wgetch.
    * fix a sign-extension bug in infocmp's repair_acsc function.
    * change winnstr to stop at the end of the line.
    * make Ada95 demo_panels example work.
    * fix for adding a non-spacing character at the beginning of a line.
    * fill in extended-color pair to make colors work for
    wide-characters using extended-colors.
    * improve refresh of window on top of multi-column characters,
    taking into account split characters on left/right window
    * modify win_wchnstr to ensure that only a base cell is returned
    for each multi-column character.
    * improve waddch and winsch handling of EILSEQ from mbrtowc by
    using unctrl to display illegal bytes rather than trying to
    append further bytes to make up a valid sequence.
    * restore curs_set state after endwin/refresh
    * modify keyname to use "^X" form only if meta has been called,
    or if keyname is called without initializing curses, e.g., via
    initscr or newterm.
    * modify unctrl to check codes in 128-255 range versus isprint.
    If they are not printable, and locale was set, use a "M-" or
    "~" sequence.
    * improve resizeterm by moving ripped-off lines, and repainting
    the soft-keys.
    * modify form library to accept control characters such as
    newline in set_field_buffer, which is compatible with Solaris.
    * use NCURSES_MOUSE_MASK in definition of BUTTON_RELEASE, etc.,
    to make those work properly with the --enable-ext-mouse
    * correct some functions in Ada95 binding which were using
    return value from C where none was returned.
    * reviewed/fixed issues reported by Coverity and Klocwork tools.


    * configure script:
          o new options:

		control whether static string tables are generated
		as single large strings (to improve startup
		performance), or as array of individual strings.
		control whether shared libraries are relinked
		(during install) when rpath is enabled.
		make explicit whether tic library depends on
		ncurses/ncursesw library.
		override the configure script's check if the
		filesystem supports mixed-case filenames. This
		allows one to control how the terminal database
		maps to the filesystem. For filesystems that do
		not support mixed-case, the library uses generate
		2-character (hexadecimal) codes for the lower-level
		of the filesystem terminfo database
		builds a different flavor of the ncurses library
		(ncursest) which improves reentrant use of the
		library by reducing global and static variables
		(see the "--with-pthread" option for the threaded
		use weak-symbols for linking to the POSIX thread
		library, and use the same soname for the ncurses
		shared library as the normal library (caveat: the
		ABI is for the threaded library, which makes global
		data accessed via functions).
		build with the POSIX thread library (tested with
		AIX, GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, HPUX, IRIX64,
		Solaris, Tru64).
		build/install the tic-support functions in a separate

          o improved options:

                requires the wide-character configuration.
		ignore option value "unsigned" is always added to
		the type in curses.h; do the same for --with-mmask-t.
                build-fix for redefinition of strndup.
		    + accepts a parameter which is the install-prefix
		    of a given Berkeley Database.
		    + the $LIBS environment variable overrides the
		    search for the db library.
                assumed when "--disable-database" is used.

    * other configure/build issues:
          o build-fixes for LynxOS
          o modify shared-library rules to allow FreeBSD 3.x to use rpath.
          o build-fix for FreeBSD "contemporary" TTY interface.
          o build-fixes for AIX with libtool.
          o build-fixes for Darwin and libtool.
          o modify BeOS-specific ifdef's to build on Haiku.
	  o corrected gcc options for building shared libraries on
	  Solaris and IRIX64.
          o change shared-library configuration for OpenBSD, make rpath work.
          o build-fixes for using libutf8, e.g., on OpenBSD 3.7
	  o add "-e" option in ncurses/ when generating
	  source-files to force earlier exit if the build environment
	  fails unexpectedly.
          o add support for shared libraries for QNX.
	  o change delimiter in from '%' to '@', to
	  avoid substitution by IBM xlc to '#' as part of its
	  extensions to digraphs.
    * library:
	  o rewrite wrapper for wcrtomb, making it work on Solaris.
	  This is used in the form library to determine the length
	  of the buffer needed by field_buffer.
	  o add/use configure script macro CF_SIG_ATOMIC_T, use
	  the corresponding type for data manipulated by signal
	  o set locale in misc/ since it uses a
	  o disable GPM mouse support when $TERM does not happen
	  to contain "linux", since Gpm_Open no longer limits its
	  assertion to terminals that it might handle, e.g., within
	  "screen" in xterm.
	  o reset mouse file-descriptor when unloading GPM library.
    * test programs:
	  o update test programs to build/work with various UNIX
	  curses for comparisons.
