I don't recall noticing this one before. Here's some commentary on it:
(summary: Linux-specific, no documentation, unsupported...)
I am into libctk. I changed the headers to that you can invoke it from
C++. It is neat code! Written by Kevin Lindsay and Wesley Terpstra when
they were working for Stormix which went bellyup in 2001.
Neat idea guys!
Was orphaned in oct 2003:
The idea is supreme: a console interface to gtk. You can use anything
gtk API but it runs on the console.
It has not a scrap of docs or man. The examples show up some bugs and I
haven't figured out why yet.
Neither can I get the deb to run. I installed the tar and that runs.
There is no doubt that this is what Debian *should have* instead of
dialog, if it weren't for the bugs. You should really be able to use a
mouse when using make menuconfig, which uses a stripped version of dialog.
