Introducing me and curses in D?
Hello,

Finally I decided to crawl into the land of D. I'm very happy to see
that the community is active. D seems to be far more nicer language
than Java or C#. The whole project seems to be rather open and free.
(Costs nothing, isn't that important :D)

And then to the question, are there a curses-like library or some
standard functions for moving the cursor and changing color etc?

Someone started a project called dcurses, but it was abandoned before 
making any releases.

I guess you could check these links, maybe you find something you can use.

In this very newsgroup you'll find Joey Peters's year-old thread "Ported
PDCurses" which has a ported header for PDCurses. You'll need to build the
library separately by yourself.

I used it successfully in the minimalistic roguelike "ShelobRogue", also about a
year ago, under the thread "Minimalistic quick-and-dirty working roguelike in D".
