I am taking C++ and Data Structures courses at San Francisco State and most of my programs use ncurses. I understand that ncurses is a package of functions in the UNIX library for use in C and C++ programs. Is there any way I can download these functions and use them from my home computer ( I want ncurses to be run on PCs). Can I install Linux on my home computer and then compile and run C programs using ncurses. And how can I install Linux and Windows on the same machine (how difficult is it)?
Thank you for your time.
