Aside from that, the two functions should be interchangeable.

Thanks Thomas! That's the problem. You noticed I was linking in
-ltermcap. If I remove this from the link line, everything works as
expected. This is great news considering I won't have to modify ncurses
or readline.

good.  This can still be a problem if readline is built using the rpath

Now, does this mean that CGDB will no longer be able to support the
termcap library? I use termcap to get capability names like End, Home,

ncurses's termcap interface provides that.  The main difference between
terminfo-based support for termcap and a real termcap library:

        a) the tgetent() call in the latter returns data that the
           application can parse directly (xterm uses this feature,
           if available).

        b) strings (function-keys aren't affected) such as cursor-movement
           are in terminfo form in the former, rather than termcap.

I lookup both the info from termcap and terminfo and if I find either of
the input, I match the data.

Thanks again!
