Then I rebuilt ncurses configuring --with-shared and then tn5250 linked. Incidentally, since the ncurses headers end up in /usr/local/lib/ncurses I added that to CPLUS_INCLUDE_PATH and C_INCLUDE_PATH and config was happier. Thanks for the help and for the great open source program. -- Jack J. Woehr # Ceterum censeo Box 51, Golden, CO 80402 # in herbas belli http://www.well.com/~jax/rcfb # ab idem desistamus.
