Title:          Linux-conio.h
Version:        1.02
Entered-date:   Mar 09, 1997
Description:    This is a mostly complete implementation of the conio.h
                for Linux - it was developed to make porting text based
		DOS applications to Linux easier.
	        It implements all port I/O commands defined in Watcom's
                conio.h and almost all other I/O commands defined in
                Borland's conio.h (including: keyboard input, formatted screen 
                output, colors, windows...) using the curses library.
                This release has some bug fixes and the possibilty to use 
		curses functions mixed with conio functions. 
Keywords:       conio.h, curses, port, inp, outp, screen, I/O

Platform:       Linux, any version.
