well maybe i'm going down the wrong path anyway.  here's the problem...

i run my program on a local, standard linux console and ACS_VLINE is drawn using the minus sign. i shell into another box with ssh (from the same local console) and run the same program, but this time ACS_VLINE corresponds to codepage 437, character C4. why the difference?

i ought to know the difference as much time as i spent mucking around with terminfo, but since the terminfo entry for the linux console does have definitions for acsc, the answer eludes me.

i was hoping for something portable.  does pdcurses offer this facility?

no (I'm not sure what pdcurses does outside of the standard operations
in this area - judging by McBrine's response, he doesn't fully understand
the question, may need some followup).
