https://github.com/Bill-Gray/PDCursesMod/releases/tag/v4.2.0

PDCursesMod is a fork of PDCurses and we managed to bring fgb's old (3.0)
PDCurses port to the current PDCursesMod.

Why would you need curses?
Lots of fun little curses-based things out there and PDCursesMod can build many
things that are typically claimed to depend on ncurses (not stuff depending on
termcap though).

Some examples:

nbsdgames:
https://github.com/abakh/nbsdgames

tetris: (replace "ncurses.h" with "curses.h")
https://github.com/brenns10/tetris

I aim to port BSDgames and NetHack, but currently real life is taking all my
time.

Nice! I've been wondering about textmode games on Plan 9. This should
open up the whole world of Roguelikes, eventually.
