 ncurses 5.1 - patch 20000923 - T.Dickey

 Ncurses 5.1 is at

 Patches for ncurses 5.1 are in the subdirectory


        + modify rs2 capability in xterm-r6 and similar where cursor
          save/restore bracketed the sequence for resetting video attributes. 
          The cursor restore would undo that (from a NetBSD bug report by John
          Hawkinson <address@hidden>).
        + using parameter check added to tic, corrected 27 typos in
          terminfo.src -TD
        + modify tic to verify that its inputs are really files, in case
          someone tries to read a directory (or /dev/zero).
        + add a check for empty buffers returned by fgets() in comp_scan.c
          next_char() function, in case tic is run on a non-text file (fixes
          a core dump reported by Aaron Campbell <address@hidden>).
        + add to railroad.c some code exercising tgoto(), providing an
          alternate form of display if the terminal supports cursor addressing.
        + split-out tgoto() again, this time into new file lib_tgoto.c, and
          implement a conventional BSD-style tgoto() which is used if the
          capability string does not contain terminfo-style padding or
          parameters (requested by Andrey A Chernov <address@hidden>).
        + add check to tic which reports capabilities that do not reference
          the expected number of parameters.
        + add error checking to infocmp's -v and -m options to ensure that
          the option value is indeed a number.
