    v159 v160  
    210210 * ps/netstat lookup counterparts (not needed to run, but fetches a lot of the information)

    212 Just about all of arm's curses usage is abstracted away behind its Panel class so, given a library with similar capabilities, adding Windows support to the interface shouldn't be too hard. The forerunner for this seems to be [http://pdcurses.sourceforge.net/ PDCurses] which might, someday, be added to Python 3 as per [http://bugs.python.org/issue2889 Python ticket 2889].

    214214Other options include [http://www.effbot.org/zone/console-handbook.htm Console], [http://newcenturycomputers.net/projects/wconio.html WConio], and [https://code.google.com/p/wcurses/ wcurses] which each provide toolkits with a subset of curses' functionality though none of them look particularly promising. The wcurses library, for instance, is completely inactive and carries the warning "This module does NOT yet implement the full API that the UNIX curses extension does, and what it does implement is buggy".
