vty-5.1.0: A simple terminal UI library

Safe HaskellNone



Terminfo based terminal handling.

The color handling assumes tektronix like. No HP support provided. If the terminal is not one I have easy access to then color support is entirely based of the docs. Probably with some assumptions mixed in.

reserveTerminal :: (Applicative m, MonadIO m) => String -> Handle -> m Output Source

Uses terminfo for all control codes. While this should provide the most compatible terminal - terminfo does not support some features that would increase efficiency and improve compatibility: - - * determine the character encoding supported by the terminal. Should this be taken from the LANG - environment variable? - - * Provide independent string capabilities for all display attributes. - - todo: Some display attributes like underline and bold have independent string capabilities that - should be used instead of the generic "sgr" string capability.
