ncurses-ruby makes most ncurses functions accessible from ruby. It can
also be built against the PDCurses library.

The ncurses-ruby homepage is at http://ncurses-ruby.berlios.de/

(Ncurses is a library for character-cell based terminal manipulation.)

Changes:
ncurses-ruby-0.8:
* Bugfix: Calls into the ncurses library prior to calling
Ncurses::initscr or Ncurses::newterm had previously crashed
the Ruby interpreter.
Fixed by delaying the binding of most Ncurses functions
until after Ncurses::initscr or Ncurses::newterm have been
called.
* Replaced module functions with singleton functions. This
means that
include Ncurses
initscr
is no longer possible. Instead, use
Ncurses.initscr
Reasons: - Consistency. That shortcut had never worked for
all implemented ncurses functions.
- Namespace pollution. Some ncurses functions have
too common names.
* Windows binary built with PDCurses-2.6

ncurses-ruby-0.7.2:
* reintroduced Ncurses:echochar and Ncurses::redrawwin in the ncurses
build.
These had been removed by mistake because they did not work with
PDCurses.
* Windows binary built for ruby-1.8. Works with both, Mingw or
Pragprog ruby interpreters.
