The Resource Library
The Resource Library is a library of C functions for screen-oriented
user interfaces. It acts on top of curses. With this library, you will be
able to design portable applications with attractive menus and lots of
Development of this package has now officially ceased.
This is for various reasons:
- My code doesn't always work as expected and has troubles when
porting to other platforms.
- The general concept isn't as straight as it should be.
- It should be object-oriented.
- There's absolutely no interest whatsoever in me finishing it.
- And, of course, there are other, better packages available.
The functions are now up and mostly running on
- SCO ODT This is where it was originally developed and where
it runs best. This is so far the only system where the colors work
(on the console and in SCOTERM windows).
- SunOS No window resize detection in command tool windows
(but in xterms).
- HP/UX Somehow the screen clear on program exit doesn't work.
- Linux Looks OK.
- Documentation (Postscript, 60kB.) The
original documentation was in German, and I stopped translating
it at some point, so the document is somewhat unfinished.
- The Resource Library
- The sample application bemogrep
(2K), a sample application, which displays the results of a
grep on the screen. It should give you a first glance of the
features. As you can see by the 2K size of the file (source
total: 8kB) , you don't need much to program the Library.
- The user tutorial was never even begun.
