Curses Development Kit is a library of widgets for curses development.
To build the library cd into the Cdk distribution directory and follow the following steps:
1) Run configure. This will create a Makefile with a default install directory root of /usr/local. If you want to change the default install directory use the --prefix command line argument on configure. For example, if you want to install under /export/local instead, run the command: ./configure --prefix="/export/local"
2) Type make. This will make the library, the example binaries and the demonstration binaries.
3) Type make install. This will install the CDK distribution. Look at step 1 if you want to install other than /usr/local.
What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· use gmtime instead of localtime in a few places so that calendar results are not offset by the hour of the day (report/analysis by Alex Charis).
· add configure option --enable-const, which defines, like NCURSES_CONST, the symbol CDK_CONST which can be used to address improved const checking while preserving source-compatibility.
· revise copyChtypeList to correspond with copyCharList
· use const in cdk_util function prototypes, similar "string" uses to improve writable-strings warnings. Arrays of strings are not addressed due to compatibility.
· change document directory to /usr/share/doc
· add configure --enable-hdr-subdir to control whether cdk.h should be in /usr/include/cdk for example, or in /usr/include. Make the default the latter, standard layout.
· simplify dpkg script, provide only one library using ncursesw
· updated configure script macros, many changes for portability.
· add cdk_test.h to installed headers (Debian #500161). Resolution of that bug report by the way did not actually install the requested header file.
· update config.guess, config.sub
