Public Domain Curses (PDcurses) is a public domain curses library.

What differentiates PD Curses from other such systems is that instead of keeping a database or a list of available and possible screen modes PD Curses uses a driver system which keeps it lighter on resources. In addition to supporting OS/2 and MS Windows natively and all UNIX like system via an implementation that binds to an X11 server, the PDC library has also been ported to SDL and can therefore be used or ported easily with any system that has a C compiler and an SDL implementation.


Available in source form only, but with full OS/2 support
