ncurses 5.1 - patch 20001007 - T.Dickey


Ncurses 5.1 is at

Patches for ncurses 5.1 are in the subdirectory


        + change type of ospeed variable back to short to match its use in
          legacy applications (reported by Andrey A Chernov).
        + add case to configure script for --enable-rpath on IRIX (patch by
          Albert Chin-A-Young).
        + minor fix to position_check() function, to ensure it gets the whole
          cursor report before decoding.
        + add configure option --disable-assumed-color, to allow pre-5.1
          convention of default colors used for color-pair 0 to be configured
          (see assume_default_colors()).
        + rename configure option --enable-hashmap --disable-hashmap, and
          reorder the configure options, splitting the experimental and
        + add configure option --disable-root-environ, which tells ncurses to
          disregard $TERMINFO and similar environment variables if the current
          user is root, or running setuid/setgid (based on discussion with
          several people).
        + modified misc/run_tic.in to use tic -o, to eliminate dependency on
          $TERMINFO variable for installs.
        + add table entry for plab_norm to tput, so it passes in strings
          for that capability.
        + modify parse_format() in lib_tparm.c to ignore precision if it is
          longer than 10000 (report by Jouko Pynnonen).
        + rewrote limit checks in lib_mvcur.c using new functions
          _nc_safe_strcat(), etc.  Made other related changes to check lengths
          used for strcat/strcpy (report by Jouko Pynnonen <address@hidden>).
