PDCurses is a public domain curses library for DOS, OS/2, Windows console, X11 and SDL, implementing most of the functions available in X/Open and System V R4 curses. It supports many compilers for these platforms. The X11 port lets you recompile existing text-mode curses programs to produce native X11 applications.
PDCurses is distributed mainly as source code, but some pre-compiled libraries may be available.
