If your programming in C, you could have a look at the Linux Programmers Guide Chapter 8.3. This is a fairly short introduction and also quite old (last updated March 1996) but it's the one I use so it's a good start. What do you need to know exactly? I'm only starting to experiment with it myself so I don't know it too well but perhaps I can be of help.

(P.S. to Atrocity - "Mortal Enemy's" should be spelled "Mortal Enemies", it's a plural word, not a contraction).

Good point.

In that case I suggest spelling "Mortal" as "Mortle", "Mortal" is too obvious, dead giveaway!

True i wouldnt want to give anyone the idea that I may actually be literate, then they might ask me to write up reports or document something

NCURSES Programming HOWTO
Has anybody found this problem when compiling the second window example:
Quote:
window_border2.c:16: error: two or more data types in declaration of `type name'
window_border2.c:93: error: two or more data types in declaration of `type name'
window_border2.c: In function `create_box':
window_border2.c:93: error: parameter name omitted
window_border2.c:102: error: syntax error before "_Bool"
window_border2.c: At top level:
window_border2.c:113: error: syntax error before "else"
window_border2.c:118: warning: parameter names (without types) in function declaration
window_border2.c:118: warning: data definition has no type or storage class
window_border2.c:120: error: syntax error before '}' token
Evey example worked up to this point. Any ideas why there is a failure in an example?
