    Kinda related to my last problem:

    I went back to a much older version to avoid issues with widechar support and it compiled&linked without problems (*hooooray*)

    Starting it results in : "Error opening terminal: unknown." which I traced down to initscr().

    So do I need to something special to get curses running ? Use a special con-device ? Set the Shell to obscure mode ???

    Edit:
    I also downloaded "cmatrix" from my best friend (tm) and it shows the same message.
    There is also something about having to install "tux goes morphos" which I'd rather avaoid ;)

    Edit2:
    sh -c "TERM=linux sc " kinda worked.....

    Yeah that looks somewhat better (and cursor keys also work).

    No I have a simplisistic spreadsheet running in console.

    Not sure what will grow out of that.

    @wet table ;-)

    Never saw that, but I guess the result would still look like something running on an 80286 in 1989.... (adding some description to your aminet uploads might be an idea).

    If I follow through at all I will ad a proper MUI-GUI, something I allready started when I was fiddling with LUACalc last year in BadBramstedt.

    @I'llFinshPanels
    Well, curses is curses, just try the included demos of the description...
    A GUI like Vim?

    Nope not a GUI like VIM (still looking text mode in a MUI window) but a very basic raster of MUI strings (for starters).
