People that do not have termcap, but have ncurses, need
to include <ncurses/termcap.h> instead.

ncurses is the prefered a replacement of termcap and curses
imho. Source code should be written for ncurses in the first
place :)

Comment 1 carlo 1999-03-10 01:42:59 UTC
It seems that gdb isn't supporting ncurses at all.
I have to manually change gdb/Makefile to use TERMCAP=-lncurses
instead of -ltermcap.  That together with adding
-I/usr/include/ncurses to CFLAGS makes it compile flawlessly.

I used gdb-4.17.0.11.spec which isn't written by RedHat I think,
but I suppose this problem is also in older versions.

You can find this spec easily with a ftp search engine.

I've found the #include <termcap.h> also in other packages
than gdb and will report them here when I run into them again.
