ncurses-ruby makes most functions, constants, and external variables of the FSF's C library "ncurses" accessible from ruby. Additionally, ncurses-ruby can now also be used in conjunction with the PDCurses library, in which case it wraps the common subset of features of both libraries. A binary package for Windows/MinGW/PDCurses is available.
Ncurses and PDCurses are libraries for character-cell based terminal manipulation. You should be familiar with curses programming before using this module. Then the README file and four example programs should get you started.
0.8 has a serious bug fix. Binary Version for windows works for ruby-1.8 with both, mingw and pragprog ruby.
