Need help on Character Sets
please tolerate my newbie questions (as Im trying to divorce Microsoft and switch over to Linux). Currently, I've gone through a tutorial on CURSES and wrote a small program to actually implement it.
I created a new window in it but am facing two problems.
1. If I use the box(...) function, All I get is a tiny bright block in the top left corner of the window. No other border is visible.
2. Then I used the wborder(....) function. But to my surprise, I cannot use the extended ASCII characters that I normally used in DOS for drawing borders (single line and double line).
Can anyone help me out of this situation. I want to draw (or atleast print) single-line and double-line border characters as text in linux. How do I go about it? :confused:
