Turbo Vision

Turbo Vision is a C++ library that provides a very nice user interface for console applications. This UNIX port is based on Borland's version 2.0 with fixes. It was made to create RHIDE, a nice IDE for gcc and other GNU compilers. The library supports /dev/vcsa devices for fast access to local consoles, and it uses ncurses to run from telnet and xterm. This port, in contrast to the Sigala's port, doesn't have "100% compatibility with the original library" as goal. Instead, many modifications were made for the sake of security (especially buffer overflows). This port is also available for the original platform (DOS).
