Subject: using arrow keys in curses
Reply-To: kunst AT prl DOT philips DOT nl

I was wondering if any of you has been using the "curses" library 
in the 'contrib' section for more than just the test program.
I have a program with "curses" routines using the so-called keypad 
keys (e.g. the arrow keys etc) In the UNIX "curses" one can make a 
call to a function "keypad(stdscr, TRUE)" which makes the arrow 
keys return values like: KEY_UP etc.

Question: is there a patch available already ?
	  Or have I overlooked something "basic" ?

The author of the "curses" library (J. Alan Eldridge) didn't include
any e-mail address, so therefore this general posting.

Thanks.
