terminfo-hs: A pure-Haskell (no FFI) module for accessing terminfo databases

[ bsd3, library, system, terminal ] [ Propose Tags ]

This module can acquire terminfo databases and query them for terminal capabilities. For details of terminfo, consult the man pages for term(5) and terminfo(5). This package is dead simple, and doesn't do anything fancy with the capabilities themselves. It merely provides a means for accessing them.
