curses and iostream

Hi all,

Can the curses and ncurses headers only be used along with the
" printw, wprintw, mvprintw, mvwprintw, vwprintw, vw_printw
- print formatted output in curses windows"

Can't you use cout along with getch() and other curses functions.

So far c++ programs to compile with the -lncurses appended when compiling, but I see no output where I should see one with cout, rather printw works fine.

Standard input/output C/C++ functions doesn't work well with ncurses. Ncurses functions should be used instead.

Nope. English dictates that you must capitalize the first letter of the first word of a sentence. A large majority of people leave technical terms in the case they are normally printed in for clarity.(bad sentence eh?)
