I'm fairly new to Lua and I want to start moving up from simple scripts
to applications with console interfaces. In message
http://lua-users.org/lists/lua-l/2003-12/msg00305.html a binding to
curses is mentioned but unfortunately I can't find a file distribution
for the library named in the message. Does anyone know of a
curses/ncurses binding for lua? I realize it is probably pretty simple
to bind using tolua, but I am just not that far along in my lua
knowledge path yet.
I've done curses programming in c, but it's more intuitive to me to
script it. Ruby in particular has a very nice OO binding to curses and I
think a curses module would be a good candidate for inclusion with the
standard lua interpreter, since there is also a binding to readline.
