installing header files


Hello

Im writing a program that needs the header files curses.h and term.h
But they do not exist on my computer.
I have read that I need to install some kind of package to get them.
Where can I find this package?
And how do I install them?

I use Suse 9.2 Pro

Best Regards
Svajje

Hi, and welcome to LQ!

But really, that's a google-question, no need to ask here:

http://www.google.co.nz/linux?hl=en&...a=lr%3Dlang_en


The first two give you download links.


Cheers,
Tink

Thanks for the help.
But that was the way that I tried but since ut didn't work I assumed that I was doing something wrong.
When I try to install that package(ncursesXXXXXXXXXX) it says that it is already installed.
Would that package also contain the term.h file?

Best regards

http://rpm.pbone.net

for any rpm based distribution that is the tool that will solve so many problems.
Go there -> click advanced search -> select your distro -> type the needed file -> click search.

or something the like ...
