tack-5.8-5.1.4 RPM for i586

From OpenSuSE 12.1 for i586

Name: tack Distribution: openSUSE 12.1
Version: 5.8 Vendor: openSUSE
Release: 5.1.4 Build date: Sat Oct 29 05:33:30 2011
Group: Development/Tools/Building Build host: build19
Size: 168423 Source RPM: ncurses-5.8-5.1.4.src.rpm
Summary: Terminfo action checker
This package contains the tack utility to help to build a new terminfo
entry describing an unknown terminal. It can also be used to test the
correctness of an existing entry, and to develop the correct pad
timings needed to ensure that screen updates do not fall behind the
incoming data stream.

    * fix typo in rmso for tek4106 entry -Goran Weinholt
    * repurpose "gnome" terminfo entries as "vte", retaining "gnome" items
    for compatibility, but generally deprecating those since the VTE
    library is what actually defines the behavior of "gnome", etc.,
    since 2003 -TD
    * correct parsing of relative tab-stops in tabs program (report by
    Philip Ganchev).

    when weak-symbols are used, allowing the pthread configuration to
    more closely match the non-thread naming (report by Werner Fink).

      a read operation in wgetch() (Novell #540571, patch by Werner Fink).
    * modify _nc_capcmp() to work with cancelled strings.
    * correct translation of "^" in _nc_infotocap(), used to transform
      terminfo to termcap strings

      environment variables may override system- and terminfo-values
      (prompted by discussion with Igor Bujna).
    * add check if Gpm_Open() returns a -2, e.g., for "xterm".  This is

      initialized in setupterm so that terminfo/termcap programs work.
    * amend fix for Debian #542031 to ensure that wattrset() returns only
      OK or ERR, rather than the attribute value (report by Miroslav
    * reorder WINDOWLIST to put WINDOW data after SCREEN pointer, making
      _nc_screen_of() compatible between normal/wide libraries again (patch
      by Miroslav Lichvar)
    * modify win_driver.c to initialize TERMINAL struct so that programs
      such as test/lrtest.c and test/ncurses.c which test string
      capabilities can run.

    pointer function _nc_globals.term_driver
* Tue Jan 12 2010
  - Update to test version 5.7.20100109

    * minor improvement to tic's checking of similar SGR's to allow for the
      most common case of SGR 0.
    * modify getmouse() to act as its documentation implied, returning on
      each call the preceding event until none are left.  When no more
      events remain, it will return ERR.
    * add bterm terminfo entry, based on bogl 0.1.18 -TD
    * minor fix to rxvt+pcfkeys terminfo entry -TD
    * update minix terminfo entry -TD
    * add bw (auto-left-margin) to nsterm* entries (Benjamin Sittler)

      field_buffer(), which stopped at the end of the first row due to
      filling of unused entries in a cchar_t array with nulls.
    * updated nsterm* entries (Benjamin Sittler, Emanuele Giaquinta)
    * modify _nc_viscbuf2() and _tracecchar_t2() to show wide-character nulls.
    * fix case where progs/tput is used while sp-funcs is configure; this
      requires save/restore of out-character function from _nc_prescreen
      rather than the SCREEN structure (report by Charles Wilson).
    * limit hashing for termcap-names to 2-characters (Ubuntu #481740).
    * fix a regression in _nc_ripoffline which made test/ncurses.c not show
      soft-keys, broken in 20090927 merging.

      discussion with Fabian Groffen in GenToo #206201).
    * add test/xterm-256color.dat
    * modify _nc_wgetch() to check for a -1 in the fifo, e.g., after a

    * modify handling of $PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR to use only the first item in
      a possibly colon-separated list (Debian #550716).

      amd64 (Debian #542031).
    * modify wgetch() to ensure it checks SIGWINCH when it gets an error
      in non-blocking mode (patch by Clemens Ladisch).
    * fix configure script option --with-database, which was coded as an
      enable-type switch.

    * minor fixes for memory-leak checking.
    * remove wide-character checks from unctrl() (patch by Clemens Ladisch).
    * revise wadd_wch() and wecho_wchar() to eliminate dependency on unctrl().
    * update llib-lncurses[wt] to use sp-funcs.
    * move definition for NCURSES_WRAPPED_VAR back to ncurses_dll.h, to
      make includes of term.h without curses.h work (report by "Nix").

    * fix an infinite recursion when adding a legacy-coding 8-bit value

    * add eterm-color entry (report by Vincent Lefevre) -TD

      tic library depends on ncurses/ncursesw library, amends change from
      20080823 (prompted by Debian #501421).
    * add environment variable NCURSES_GPM_TERMS to allow override to use
      GPM on terminals other than "linux", etc.
    * disable GPM mouse support when $TERM does not happen to contain
      "linux", since Gpm_Open() no longer limits its assertion to terminals
      that it might handle, e.g., within "screen" in xterm.

      possibly renamed) to remove its dependency upon ncurses/ncursew
      library (patch by Dr Werner Fink).
    * add Eterm-256color, Eterm-88color and rxvt-88color (prompted by
      Debian #495815) -TD
    * add configure option --enable-weak-symbols to turn on new feature.
    * add configure-check for availability of weak symbols.
    * modify linkage with pthread library to use weak symbols so that
      applications not linked to that library will not use the mutexes,
      etc.  This relies on gcc, and may be platform-specific (patch by Dr Werner Fink).
    * add note to INSTALL to document limitation of renaming of tic library
      using the --with-ticlib configure option (report by Dr Werner Fink).
    * document (in manpage) why tputs does not detect I/O errors (prompted
