Description Bastien Nocera 2004-11-22 06:14:33 EST
The test case attached doesn't show any linefeeds and doesn't reset
the terminal before and after the call to the curses.sh script.

With ncurses 5.3 and 5.4, after pressing a key once:
$ ./curses
line one
        line two
                line three
                          line four
                                   press any key...

With ncurses 5.2, after pressing a key once:
$ ./curses
 line one
line two
line three
line four
press any key...

Comment 3 Bastien Nocera 2004-11-22 06:17:40 EST
Note: ncurses 5.2 is available on RHEL 2.1, 5.3 on RHEL 3, 5.4 on RHEL
4 beta.
Comment 4 Thomas E. Dickey 2004-11-25 16:01:09 EST
The test-case gives me the same result (will investigate).
Comment 5 Thomas E. Dickey 2004-11-27 21:13:51 EST
I put a fix in tonight's changes for ncurses (20041127).
Comment 6 Bastien Nocera 2004-11-29 06:00:29 EST
Thomas, would you be able to point us to a patch, or a way to get a
CVS access to backport this patch to 5.2?
Comment 7 Thomas E. Dickey 2004-11-29 06:04:53 EST
The patch is in ftp://invisible-island.net/ncurses/5.4
(ncurses-5.4-20041127.patch.gz).  Outside of the chunks
for the configure script and test-program, the remainder
is the pieces you would need for just this change (the
pieces under the ncurses directory).  It's not a large
change - I added an entrypoint _nc_setupterm, which is
now called directly from tgetent.
Comment 8 Thomas E. Dickey 2005-01-29 19:24:47 EST
At this point, that patch file isn't on my ftp site;
it's combined into the rollup patch.  (I can supply
a copy of the cited patch if there's interest - generally
I remove all of the weekly patches after a rollup).
