As far as I know, there hasn't been any discussion. No one has used
slang up to this time, or if they have, the results haven't been
reported to the list. I am now trying to compile with both and compare
the results. Both seem to work fine on a standard US setup, with slang
giving somewhat better screen handling. How they will work on non-US
setups is something that people will have to try and then report to the
list. PDCurses still has some problems. The testcurses program does not
test properly on all functions, but this doesn't seem to affect
functioning for lynx.
