Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cursing Programming with Curses There has got to be a better introduction book to the curses library. While this one takes you through basic screen manipulation, and provides a simple application, it only covers maybe 1/3 of the actual curses library (if that). I get this number by looking at the actual header file vs the reference pages in the back of the book. It is virtually worthless as a reference book, and doesn't cover the functions that would be most useful. There are far superior and more complete introductions to curses on the web.
