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.

* Fri Jul 20 2012
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20120714 (bnc#769788)
    + add use_tioctl() function (adapted from patch by Werner Fink,
    Novell #769788):
  - Set the default for use_tioctl() to TRUE and add a note in the
    manual page for this.
* Mon Jul 09 2012
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20120707 (bnc#769788)
    + add ncurses_mingw.h to installed headers (prompted by patch by
      Juergen Pfeifer).
    + clarify return-codes from wgetch() in response to SIGWINCH (prompted
      by Novell #769788).
    + modify resizeterm() to always push a KEY_RESIZE onto the fifo, even
      if screensize is unchanged.  Modify _nc_update_screensize() to push a
      KEY_RESIZE if there was a SIGWINCH, even if it does not call
      resizeterm().  These changes eliminate the case where a SIGWINCH is
      received, but ERR returned from wgetch or wgetnstr because the screen
      dimensions did not change (Novell #769788).
* Tue Jun 26 2012

    + add configure check to distinguish clang from gcc to eliminate
      warnings about unused command-line parameters when compiler warnings
      are enabled.
    + improve behavior when updating terminfo entries which are hardlinked
      by allowing for the possibility that an alias has been repurposed to
      a new primary name.
    + fix some strict compiler warnings based on package scripts.
    + further fixes for configure check for working poll (Debian #676461).
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20120608
    + fix an uninitialized variable in -c/-n logic for infocmp changes
      (cf: 20120526).

      controls, and insert/delete-char keys
    + correct no-leaks logic in infocmp when doing comparisons, fixing
      duplicate free of entries given via the command-line, and freeing
      entries loaded from the last-but-one of files specified on the

    + corrected 'op' for bterm (report by Samuel Thibault) -TD
    + modify test/background.c to demonstrate a background character
      holding a colored ACS_HLINE.  The behavior differs from SVr4 due to
      the thick- and double-line extension (cf: 20091003).
    + modify handling of acs characters in PutAttrChar to avoid mapping an
      unmapped character to a space with A_ALTCHARSET set.
    + rewrite vt520 entry based on vt420 -TD

  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20120428
    + fix some inconsistencies between vt320/vt420, e.g., cnorm/civis -TD
    + add eslok flag to dec+sl -TD
    + dec+sl applies to vt320 and up -TD
    + drop wsl width from xterm+sl -TD
    + reuse xterm+sl in putty and nsca-m -TD
    + add ansi+tabs to vt520 -TD
    + add ansi+enq to vt220-vt520 -TD
    + fix a compiler warning in example in ncurses-intro.doc (Paul Waring).
    + added paragraph in keyname manpage telling how extended capabilities

    + modify tic's check of conflicting key definitions to include extended
      capability strings in addition to the existing check on predefined
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20120421
    + improve cleanup of temporary files in tic using atexit().
    + add msgr to vt420, similar DEC vtXXX entries -TD
    + add several missing vt420 capabilities from vt220 -TD
    + factor out ansi+pp from several entries -TD
    + change xterm+sl and xterm+sl-twm to include only the status-line
      capabilities and not "use=xterm", making them more generally useful
      as building-blocks -TD
    + add dec+sl building block, as example -TD
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20120414
    + add consistency check in tic for screen's "XT" capability.
    + add section in terminfo.src summarizing the user-defined capabilities
      used in that file -TD
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20120407
    + fix an inconsistency between tic/infocmp "-x" option; tic omits all
      non-standard capabilities, while infocmp was ignoring only the user
      definable capabilities.
    + improve special case in tic parsing of description to allow it to be
      followed by terminfo capabilities.  Previously the description had to
      be the last field on an input line to allow tic to distinguish
      between termcap and terminfo format while still allowing commas to be
      embedded in the description.
    + correct variable name in which broke configurability of
      the --with-xterm-kbs option.
    + revert 2011-07-16 change to "linux" alias, return to "linux2.2" -TD
    + further amend 20110910 change, providing for configure-script
      override of the "linux" terminfo entry to install and changing the
      default for that to "linux2.2" (Debian #665959).
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20120331
    + update Ada95/configure to use CF_DISABLE_ECHO (cf: 20120317).
    + correct order of use-clauses in st-256color -TD
    + modify configure script to look for gnatgcc if the Ada95 binding
      is built, in preference to the default gcc/cc (suggested by
      Nicolas Boulenguez).
    + modify configure script to ensure that the same -On option used for
      the C compiler in CFLAGS is used for ADAFLAGS rather than simply
      using -O3 (suggested by Nicolas Boulenguez)
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20120324
    + amend an old fix so that next_char() exits properly for empty files,
      e.g., from reading /dev/null (cf: 20080804).
    + modify tic so that it can read from the standard input, or from
      a character device.  Because tic uses seek's, this requires writing
      the data to a temporary file first (prompted by remark by Sven
      Joachim) (cf: 20000923).
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20120317
    + correct a check made in lib_napms.c, so that terminfo applications
      can again use napms() (cf: 20110604).
    + add a note in tic.h regarding required casts for ABSENT_BOOLEAN
      (cf: 20040327).
    + correct scripting for --disable-echo option in test/configure.
    + amend check for missing c++ compiler to work when no error is
      reported, and no variables set (cf: 20021206).
    + add/use configure macro CF_DISABLE_ECHO.
* Mon Mar 12 2012
  - Add check_build script to avoid to stumble on gcc exception 32
* Mon Mar 12 2012

    + use begin_va_copy/end_va_copy macros in lib_printw.c (cf: 20120303).
    + improve a limit-check in infocmp.c (Werner Fink)
* Mon Mar 05 2012
  - Add tack patch 1.07.20120303
    + fix many compilerv warnings
    + update auto configure
    + update copyright date
    + Update configure-script and makefile template to work with this
      post-5.9 change, allowing build of tack within the ncurses
      source-tree 20110924.  The change is prompted by review of
      OpenSUSE package by Werner Fink, using a patch from the rpm
      source file: ncurses-5.9-tack-tinfo.dif (2011-11-18)
* Mon Mar 05 2012
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20120303
    + minor tidying of terminfo.tail, clarify reason for limitation
      regarding mapping of \0 to \200
    + minor improvement to _nc_copy_termtype(), using memcpy to replace
    + fix no-leaks checking in test/demo_termcap.c to account for multiple
      calls to setupterm().
    + modified the libgpm change to show previous load as a problem in the
    > merge some patches from OpenSUSE rpm (Werner Fink):
    + ncurses-5.7-printw.dif, fixes for varargs handling in lib_printw.c
    + ncurses-5.7-gpm.dif, do not dlopen libgpm if already loaded by
      runtime linker
    + ncurses-5.6-fallback.dif, do not free arrays and strings from static
      fallback entries
* Thu Mar 01 2012
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20120228
    + fix breakage in tic/infocmp from 20120225 (report by Werner Fink).
* Mon Feb 27 2012
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20120225
    + modify configure script to allow creating dll's for MinGW when
    + add --enable-string-hacks option to control whether strlcat and
      strlcpy may be used.  The same issue applies to OpenBSD's warnings
      about snprintf, noting that this function is weakly standardized.
    + add configure checks for strlcat, strlcpy and snprintf, to help
      reduce bogus warnings with OpenBSD builds.
    + build-fix for OpenBSD 4.9 to supply consistent intptr_t declaration
    + update config.guess, config.sub

      Linux versus most other systems.
* Mon Feb 06 2012
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20120204
    + improved tic -D option, avoid making target directory and provide
      better diagnostics.
* Mon Jan 30 2012
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20120128
    + add mach-gnu (Debian #614316, patch by Samuel Thibault)

    + amend fix intended to separate fixups for acsc to allow "tic -cv" to
      give verbose warnings (cf:  20110730).
    + modify misc/ to make the location of the tabset directory
      consistent with misc/, i.., using ${datadir}/tabset
      (Debian #653435, patch by Sven Joachim).
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20120121
    + add --with-lib-prefix option to allow configuring for old/new flavors
    of OS/2 EMX.
    + modify check for gnat version to allow for year, as used in FreeBSD
    + modify check_existence() in db_iterator.c to simply check if the
    path is a directory or file, according to the need.  Checking for
    directory size also gives no usable result with OS/2 (cf: 20120107).
    + support OS/2 kLIBC (patch by KO Myung-Han).
* Mon Jan 16 2012
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20120114
    * several improvements to test/movewindow.c (prompted by discussion on
    Linux Mint forum):
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20120107
    * various improvments for MinGW (Juergen Pfeifer):
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20111231
    * modify toe's report when -a and -s options are combined, to add
    a column showing which entries belong to a given database.
    * add -s option to toe, to sort its output.
    * modify progs/toe.c, simplifying use of db-iterator results to use
    caching improvements from 20111001 and 20111126.
    * correct generation of pc-files when ticlib or termlib options are
    given to rename the corresponding tic- or tinfo-libraries (report
    by Sven Joachim).
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20111224
    * document a portability issue with tput, i.e., that scripts which work
    with ncurses may fail in other implementations that do no parameter
    * add putty-sco entry -TD
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20111217
    * review/fix places in manpages where --program-prefix configure option
    was not being used.
    * add -D option to infocmp, to show the database locations that it
    could use.
    * fix build for the special case where term-driver, ticlib and termlib
    are all enabled.  The terminal driver depends on a few features in
    the base ncurses library, so tic's dependencies include both ncurses
    and termlib.
    * fix build work for term-driver when --enable-wgetch-events option is
    * use <stdint.h> types to fix some questionable casts to void*.
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20111210
    * modify configure script to check if thread library provides
    pthread_mutexattr_settype(), e.g., not provided by Solaris 2.6
    * modify configure script to suppress check to define _XOPEN_SOURCE
    for IRIX64, since its header files have a conflict versus
    * modify configure script to add ".pc" files for tic- and
    tinfo-libraries, which were omitted in recent change (cf: 20111126).
    * fix inconsistent checks on $PKG_CONFIG variable in configure script.
* Tue Dec 20 2011
  - remove call to suse_update_config (very old work around)
* Mon Dec 05 2011
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20111203
    * modify configure-check for etip.h dependencies, supplying a temporary
    copy of ncurses_dll.h since it is a generated file (prompted by
    Debian #646977).
    * modify CF_CPP_PARAM_INIT "main" function to work with current C++.
* Mon Nov 28 2011
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20111126
    * correct database iterator's check for duplicate entries
    (cf: 20111001).
    * modify database iterator to ignore $TERMCAP when it is not an
    absolute pathname.
    * add -D option to tic, to show the database locations that it could
    * improve description of database locations in tic manpage.
    * modify the configure script to generate a list of the ".pc" files to
    generate, rather than deriving the list from the libraries which have
    been built (patch by Mike Frysinger).
    * use AC_CHECK_TOOLS in preference to AC_PATH_PROGS when searching for
    ncurses*-config, e.g., in Ada95/configure and test/configure (adapted
    from patch by Mike Frysinger).
* Thu Nov 24 2011
  - Avoid linker script as bash configure can not
    handle this
* Thu Nov 24 2011
  - Use linker scripts to amke sure that libtinfo will be found
    even if -ltinfo is missed on the linker command line
* Tue Nov 22 2011
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20111119
    * remove obsolete/conflicting fallback definition for _POSIX_SOURCE
    from curses.priv.h, fixing a regression with IRIX64 and Tru64
    (cf: 20110416)
    * modify _nc_tic_dir() to ensure that its return-value is nonnull,
    i.e., the database iterator was not initialized.  This case is needed
    to when tic is translating to termcap, rather than loading the
    database (cf:  20111001).
* Fri Nov 18 2011
  - Update to tack 1.07-20110626
  - Enlarge hash size for run time linker
  - Enforce bind references to global function symbols to the
    definition within libncurses and libtinfo
* Thu Nov 17 2011
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20111112
    * add pccon entries for OpenBSD console (Alexei Malinin).
    * build-fix for OpenBSD 4.9 with gcc 4.2.1, setting _XOPEN_SOURCE to
    600 to work around inconsistent ifdef'ing of wcstof between C and
    C++ header files.
    * modify capconvert script to accept more than exact match on "xterm",
    e.g., the "xterm-*" variants, to exclude from the conversion (patch
    by Robert Millan).
    * fix a typo misc/, used in uninstalling pc-files.
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20111030
    * modify make_db_path() to allow creating "terminfo.db" in the same
    directory as an existing "terminfo" directory.  This fixes a case
    where switching between hashed/filesystem databases would cause the
    new hashed database to be installed in the next best location -
    root's home directory.
    * add variable cf_cv_prog_gnat_correct to those passed to
    config.status, fixing a problem with Ada95 builds (cf: 20111022).
    * change feature test from _XPG5 to _XOPEN_SOURCE in two places, to
    accommodate broken implementations for _XPG6.
    * eliminate usage of NULL symbol from etip.h, to reduce header
    * add configure check to decide when to add _XOPEN_SOURCE define to
    compiler options, i.e., for Solaris 10 and later (cf: 20100403).
    This is a workaround for gcc 4.6, which fails to build the c++
    binding if that symbol is defined by the application, due to
    incorrectly combining the corresponding feature test macros
    (report by Peter Kruse).
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20111022
    * correct logic for discarding mouse events, retaining the partial
    events used to build up click, double-click, etc, until needed
    (cf: 20110917).
    * fix configure script to avoid creating unused Ada95 makefile when
    gnat does not work.
    * cleanup width-related gcc 3.4.3 warnings for 64-bit platform, for the
    internal functions of libncurses.  The external interface of courses
    uses bool, which still produces these warnings.
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20111015
    * improve description of --disable-tic-depends option to make it
    clear that it may be useful whether or not the --with-termlib
    option is also given (report by Sven Joachim).
    * amend termcap equivalent for set_pglen_inch to use the X/Open
    "YI" rather than the obsolete Solaris 2.5 "sL" (cf: 990109).
    * improve manpage for tgetent differences from termcap library.
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20111008
    * moved static data from db_iterator.c to lib_data.c
    * modify db_iterator.c for memory-leak checking, fix one leak.
    * modify misc/ to use Requires.private for the parts
    of ncurses rather than Requires, as well as Libs.private for the
    other library dependencies (prompted by Debian #644728).
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20111001
    * modify tic "-K" option to only set the strict-flag rather than force
    source-output.  That allows the same flag to control the parser for
    input and output of termcap source.
    * modify _nc_getent() to ignore backslash at the end of a comment line,
    making it consistent with ncurses' parser.
    * restore a special-case check for directory needed to make termcap
    text files load as if they were databases (cf: 20110924).
    * modify tic's resolution/collision checking to attempt to remove the
    conflicting alias from the second entry in the pair, which is
    normally following in the source file.  Also improved the warning
    message to make it simpler to see which alias is the problem.
    * improve performance of the database iterator by caching search-list.
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20110925
    * add a missing "else" in changes to _nc_read_tic_entry().
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20110924
    * modify _nc_read_tic_entry() so that hashed-database is checked before
    * updated CF_CURSES_LIBS check in test/configure script.
    * modify configure script and makefiles to split TIC_ARGS and
    TINFO_ARGS into pieces corresponding to LDFLAGS and LIBS variables,
    to help separate searches for tic- and tinfo-libraries (patch by Nick
    Alcock aka "Nix").
    * build-fix for lib_mouse.c changes (ch: 20110917).
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20110917
    * fix compiler warning for clang 2.9
    * improve merging of mouse events (integrated patch by Damien
    * correct mask-check used in lib_mouse for wheel mouse buttons 4/5
    (patch by Damien Guibouret).
  - Add ncurses patch 5.9.20110910
    * modify misc/ to select a "linux" entry which works with
    the current kernel rather than assuming it is always "linux3.0"
    (cf: 20110716).
    * revert a change to getmouse() which had the undesirable side-effect
    of suppressing button-release events (report by Damien Guibouret,
    cf: 20100102).
    * add xterm+kbs fragment from xterm #272 -TD
    * add configure option --with-pkg-config-libdir to provide control over
    the actual directory into which pc-files are installed, do not use
    the pkg-config environment variables (discussion with Frederic L W

      zero, indicating that the connection is closed (Debian #506717,
      adapted from patch by Samuel Thibault).
    * turn on _XOPEN_CURSES definition in curses.h
    * add eterm-color entry (report by Vincent Lefevre) -TD

      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.
    * fix bug in mouse code for GPM from 20080920 changes (reported in
      Debian #500103, also Miroslav Lichvar).

    * 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
