I would like to ask if it is possible ( and how =)) to force ncurses window
to behave like terminal towards the ansi escape sequences ( e.g. ESC[K for
deleting whole line, ... ). I am writing a kind of simple ui frontend to the
shell ( which is connected to the pseudoterminal ) and I would need ncurses

That would be a terminal emulator (and ANSI escape sequences would be an
example of something to support).  screen does this...

to properly parse shell output ( redirected from the pseudorminal -> full of
ansi escape sequences). It is actually ,,pretending that a single terminal
is running in ncurses window". It would be great if it would be also
possible to open applications like vim ( using some ui themselves ) in this

Thanks a lot for any advices.T.
