Thanks for the info, Walt.

Does anyone know if adding term.h would cause any problems on other systems? It seems to be a part of ncurses, so I suspect it'd work on any curses-based solution?

I got xt5250/tn5250 to work on Mac OS X by adding #include's as shown below:

Without these, I believe there are un-prototyped routines in the modules
and the C compiler (incorrectly) uses a default prototype returning an
int. On 64-bit OS's where pointers are not interchangeable with int's
this causes addressing issues.

Hope this helps.
