Hi Chris,

unicode is not included. I started with ROTE because of its simplicity
and because it is sufficient for my purposes (curses-based viewer for
DNA alignments).

ROTE's homepage suggests using libvterm [1] instead, but this project
has not been updated for 2 years. There is another project with name
libvterm [2], which seems to be active. There is also its'
modification for project NeoVim [3].

I'm going to bind one of them to Lua.


Best regards,
Boris Nagaev
