    Release Notes: This version fixes a problem where the handle getnstr() was not defined (needed for SGI IRIX 6.5.22).

    •  27 Mar 2003 12:45

      Release Notes: The program no longer dies horribly when accessing beyond the end of a device. The provided memrchr() function was fixed, as was the display after searching in modes larger than 32-bit. BLKGETSIZE is now used to try to find the size of a device.

      •  24 Oct 2001 18:03

        Release Notes: More s/int/INT/ (mainly in the "edited" list manipulation).

        •  25 Jun 2001 22:10

          Release Notes: Major code cleanups and minor bugfixes.

          •  25 Mar 1999 09:00

            Release Notes: Added many shortcuts so that F1..F12 and some others works on more terms (xterm, rxvt, sgi's winterm...), removed the scanw that's badly handled on sgi (replaced by getstr + sscanf), now displays the reached offset while searching and manpage update.

            I like it
            Simple and straightforward, easy to configure and build (4.2-RELEASE FreeBSD, gcc 2.95.2), easy to use.

            Nice program
            Easy to compile and install (autoconf), works great on RedHat 6.2.
            the author mentions problems with the curses that comes with RedHat 5.0 - so I guess those have been fixed.
