I used curses beetween 1989 and 1994 in C.
Since 1996 I started to use a lot of perl. And recently I had to offer a simple UI on terminal screen to one of my client. I remembered the C curses library and check if someone had developed it in perl. And then I found the Curses::UI modules.
What a great job. The result is amazing. By curiosity I looked at the code and it confirmed me the developper who have done it are veryy serious because it's pretty well done.
