- Name of the GNU program.

- Summary of the project/idea.
  Extension of screenio interface (curses based)

- Little paragraph explaining the project/idea.
  GnuCOBOL uses curses (ncurses/pdcurses) to create a portable
  "extended" screenio.
  This project is about extending the runtime parts handling this
  * add support to use curses windows
  * improve handling to accept formatted and numeric values
  * save and restore screen attributes and data
  * optional: support for TUI creation (simple components: buttons,
    checkboxes, option fields)
  * optional (extending the compiler) - code generation for
    SCREEN SECTION extensions

- Skills required.
  Knowledge of C, knowledge of the curses API.
  Basic knowledge of COBOL and the GnuCOBOL package along with building
  a package from source is mandatory.

- Contact address for interested students.
