Subject: Re: [TUHS] user-level v1
Date: Mon, 16 Sep 2019 00:03:07 -0600 [thread overview]
Message-ID: <201909160603.x8G637QQ026140@freefriends.org> (raw)
No, Bill Joy did vi. Ken Arnold did curses. The vi code did all it's
stuff directly with the termlib library calls. (Use The Source, Luke!)
Curses provided a library explicitly for screen oriented stuff that worked
at a higher level.
Mary Anne can and should tell the story of the progression of curses
to System V and terminfo.
