Building with curses on windows (pdcursesmod)
This : [https://github.com/Bill-Gray/PDCursesMod](https://github.com/Bill-Gray/PDCursesMod)

... because PDCureses was erroring out for me, tried other, seems better.

One build issue :


define_key not defined. that's a ncurses extension. have a dummy in there for
now so it will link as follows :

// pdcurses doesn't implement define_key so we stub for the time being.
int define_key(const char *definition, int keycode)
return ERR ; // not implemented.

Filed as issue here : 

That builds & runs. Can type gui to enter gui mode but its not interactive.

Should be. Perhaps due to stubbed define_key. Don't know. Don't personally have
time to take this further at the moment, but was a request issue was filed.

Need something like this to build with PDCursesMod

set CURSES_LIB=%CURSES_ROOT%\wincon\pdcurses.lib

-DLLVM_ENABLE_PROJECTS="clang;lldb" -B build -G Ninja

Also if you build PDCursesMod as DLL, you'll need to patch #include as follows.

#define PDC_DLL_BUILD 1
#include "curses.h"
