System: NetBSD frohike.nvie.com 2.0_BETA NetBSD 2.0_BETA (FROHIKE) #1: Tue Jul 6 14:42:10 CEST 2004 sjamaan@frohike.nvie.com:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/FROHIKE i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
>Description:
The curses(3) manpage on 2.0 BETA mentions that NetBSD's Curses implementation
is compatible with X/Open Curses specification, but there are some missing
functions like getwin, putwin, scr_dump etc.

Related to PR 24928.  That PR can be closed as soon as this is closed.

>How-To-Repeat:

>Fix:
I don't know if there's actual work being done on correcting this, but if
there isn't and there's enough time before 2.0 release, I wouldn't mind
(trying to) implement the missing functions myself.

IMHO 2.0 shouldn't be released without a complete curses implementation, or
at least the STANDARDS section should be removed from the manpage if it is.

Please contact me at Peter.Bex@student.kun.nl for more info.

 I sincerely doubt that we'd hold up 2.0 for Curses.  However, please feel free 
 to implement the functionality and send changes.
