[Jason Peter Sage] Hello Michael. "Does Not Work" means in this case that
the source code compiles, but when I run it (It DOES RUN) I have a blinking
cursor... that's it. Now this "test" was KDE xwindows, Fedora 5, I tried the
non xwindow mode just because I was curious... no dice - same symptoms. I
tried both shell and linux console varieties of the KDE "Terminal Window".

In the past I knew and expected character set difference, so I always wrote
a "text only" mode that just used colors and simple thing like asterisks and
pipe characters and dashes to make text gui windows etc.. no dice.
