Hi Rob,

the ncurses definition module is not installed with gm2 - but it is
available in the examples directory.


there is also a working program module which performs some basic screen
IO.  I didn't install ncurses with the gm2 install as I didn't really
want to keep tracking libncurses-dev with ncurses.def.  Not that I
imagine there would be any significant changes over time - but it was
one less dependency.  I've used this ncurses.def module with screen
output to simulate a real-time executive - four processes printing data
to four windows (using WindowDevice) - which in turn uses ncurses.

It might be worth examining the interaction between WindowDevice and
ncurses.  Both are in the gm2/examples/ncurses directory:
