The vty package

[Tags: bsd3, library, program]

vty is a *very* simplistic library in the niche of ncurses. It is intended to be easy to use, have no confusing corner cases, and good support for common terminal types.

If you want to use it, currently the best reference is the test module (Test.hs).

Notable infelicities: requires an ANSI-type terminal, poor efficiency, requires Linux/xterm style UTF8 support.
