Actually, I'm programming in windows, but since Curses is a linux thing I figure i'd have more luck here. Of courses, if I'm wrong, moderators, feel free to move this message.
Okay, I've made this tetris program and I'm trying to click with as few and as simple libraries as I can, so I don't want to load any others, and I'm tired of the TAP-TAP-TAPping to get the pieces into place. I'd prefer if when I depressed the key the left-right moved and when you released it stopped, with some reasonable delay so as to avoid on too-fast computers that far left and far right become the only options.
I've been over the documenataion and I'm not sure it can be done. Am I wrong?
