Data Curses.h not found ...

I am writing a program which uses curses.h. I do not have any problem when compilng it in Digital UNIX at my school.

But when I compiling it in Mandrake Linux 6.0 at my home, I got a error message said that curses.h not found.

Does curses.h include in Linux?
How to slove my problem?

Under redhat, /usr/include/curses.h is provided by ncurses-devel. Mandrake should have a similar package.

$ rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/include/curses.h

locate it with find
find /usr/include -name curses.h [-print]
