Thanks for the reply. I will take a look at the C API for ncurses, 
because Python's curses module doesn't have a scrollable text view 
(though it has a curses.textpad which allows multiline text input in the 
visible window only). 

The Python curses interface appears to be much more limited than the C 
API which is understandable. Once again thanks for the reply. I will look 
at the C API and see what is possible.
