Projects / TextTools


The Texttools packages are an ncurses-based library for the Linux console written in Ada 95. It contains more than 600 procedures and functions to create windows, draw scroll bars, handle the mouse and keyboard events, play sounds, and much more. It also provides a thick binding to Linux kernel calls. You can create a wide variety of application programs using Texttools alone.
