Ok, ee contains his own subset of curses implementation. It use ioctl() to
set up terminal in raw mode.
I've patched it to use termios structure instead of termio and use
tcsetattr()/tcgetattr() to set up terminal. It works.
It's also possible to compile ee with native curses, I compile it with
ncurses5 but it crashes when run.
I'm not shure if I should investigate what's wrong with native curses.
BTW: how to compile programm with debug info?
I tryed to pass -ggdb to compiler, but gdb can't find symbols :(
