Martin (and anyone else interested),

Please look at the libnewt-term-perl packages at:


I hope these will be adequate.  They reconcile all of the changes that
I could find in the interface between newt-0.25 and newt-0.30.  I am
not, however, terribly conversant with newt, and there is no test
suite for the perl interface, so although it _should_ work, there are
no guarantees.

If people can give me some feedback about whether they think these
packages function as they should, I would be happy to upload them to
