Subpackage Descriptions
complete This is the ncurses-standard metapackage. It pulls in all subpackages of ncurses-standard.
primary The ncurses software includes a SVr4 and XSI-Curses compatible curses library as well as terminfo tools including "tic", "infocmp", and "captoinfo". The library is used by other programs for text-mode support of color, multiple highlights, forms-drawing characters, automatic recognition of keypad and function-key sequences, and more. The ncurses library uses a terminfo database (included), but can be configured to use BSD's /etc/termcap file instead. This has been approved by the old 4.4BSD curses maintainer as the official 4.4BSD curses successor.
