Source Code from "Programmer Guide to NCurses" by Dan Gookinby Wojciech Adam Koszek ⋅ Jul 8, 2015 ⋅ Menlo Park, CA
Dan Gookin did a good job with getting some NCurses examples out in the world, and I've just made it easier to access. If you like to write your own, little crude tools, and do all of this in C, this is a good resource.
Even though I’ve never read Gookin’s book, I’ve noticed that his website tarball with C sources is quite useful, as it contains small self-contained programs. To the sources I’ve added a
makefile to make build automated and I’ve fixed programs which weren’t compiling.
For MacOSX I didn’t need anything. For Ubuntu you’ll probably have to type:
apt-get install libncurses5-dev libncurses5
How to build?
Fetch the source, enter its folder and type make:
git clone https://github.com/wkoszek/ncurses_guide.git cd ncurses_guide ./build.sh
The result of this will be in
book-ref/ directories with
.prog programs, each one corresponding to its
To clean-up, run:
How it’s tested?
The project is wired to Travis-Ci service:
Everything is compiled with 2 compilers: GCC and Clang and as of now compiles with no warnings.
