Hi,Im not sure if this is the right place for this but i downloaded pdcurses 2.8 and it works fine but i've just spent the last 24hours trying to find out

well pdcurses has its own mailing list...

how to get the program scan its window for certain characters,is there any way of doing this?! ie i would fill the screen with '#',is it even possible to go if(thescreen,7,7=='#'){dowhatever;} can the program take the state of the currnet window so i ciould do this or can it only accept input from the keyboard?!?!
any help much much apprieciated,Hugh at... address@hidden

However, I see that it implements winch(), etc., which can be used to
read characters from a window's state.  That's an X/Open curses feature
which is provided by most implementations (including ncurses ;-).
