NAME
libcurses, libtermcap, libtermlib - screen handling and optimization library

The libtermcap and libtermlib libraries are identical to libcurses and are maintained for backward compatibility. See libcurses(3XCURSES) for information about the curses library that conforms to X/Open Curses, Issue 4, Version 2.
