    TUI - Text User Interface

    Does anyone know a lib or what else to build a good TUI in C? I found the ncurses and it's excelent but isn't portable to Windows/DOS.

    I think that decent dos interface libs were dropped by the time win98 came out.

    have you checked sourceforge to see if there is one available?

    The DJGPP compiler (it's DOS-based) has a really good library built in. It also has the POSIX library.
