Solved one part of my problem. As expected, ncurses is a bit
complex:) Characters are wrong for various reasons. In this
case, the font I was using, 5x8.psf, does not have the line
drawing characters expected. I found this out by running
the "other_borders" demo program which displayed a window with
borders made up of +, - and |--not as neat but it worked.
I tried the window demo programs using the default font on
the Ben and the windows were drawn correctly. However, that
results in a screen size too small to show some key parts
of the demos-- win some and lose some:) Not sure if I
can find a 5x8 terminal font that does contain the line
The problems with shared libraries are currently unsolved.
