    Since it is in fact the C board, we can assume his application is probably written in C. thus, one can assume he wants to do what Vim does in C.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Read the source and find out for yourself. Here is a list of mirrors.

    The beautiful thing about Open Sourced software is that the source is opened to the public.

    Yeah, vim is written in C and uses ncurses. I would skip the source and just do the ncurses tutorial, I think that is what you want.
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge
