Hi, I've debuged it from the beginning, and:
// end inserted
printw ("%*s", still, "");
//SLsmg_write_nwchars ((wchar_t *) buffer, txtlen);
printw ("%*s", len - txtwidth - still, "");
printw("/ls",lonaka); handles everything as expected, the right UTF-8
chars appeared on the screen. So text in the buffer is properly
It is an Slang2 issue, but it's too compicated to figure out for the
first blick, the problem in the slsmg.c file.
Does anyone know why #define unix != 1 for darwin-ppc in mc (and/or) slang????
