crossplatform curses-style apps

Hi, I want to write a console/terminal app in Python that requires
curses-like functionality. Problem: the python curses module doesn't seem to
work on Windows. In fact it doesn't work (isn't part of the Python package)
on my Linux distro (SUSE Linux 9.1 Special Edition) either.
Well what should I do? The app is supposed to work on Windows and Linux at
least (more platforms would be nice).

TIA,
copx

There is no curses package for windoze....
A great shame...

Hi, I'm having trouble with a small curses program. I'm associate a pad with a panel. As I understand, a pad is supposed to be just a window with an arbitrary size. That seems to imply that a pad can be treated like a normal window when working with panels. I have this code: #!/usr/bin/env python import curses import curses.panel

I'd like to write a class or module in python that allows me to do on-the-fly color changing in the curses module. I'm thinking about something along the lines of this: addstr(y, x, 'hello', brightyellow, blue) The module would automatically interpret the above as curses.init_pair(i, curses.COLOR_YELLOW, curses.COLOR_BLUE)
