-Ancient history: TACK -- the terminfo action checker
-
- The purpose of this program is to verify the correctness of
-terminfos and to calculate the pads needed for each capability.
-This program is not designed to test curses and therefore uses
-as little of curses as possible.
-
- This program was originally called TED. In 1991 it was
-released to USENET in comp.sources. TED was originally written to
-test both terminfos and termcaps. The original intent was to
-create a terminfo editor. This code fell quite short of its goal.
-Tests were controlled by command line switches and editing was done
-with pen and paper.
-
- In 1995 Eric S. Raymond got interested in the program and added
-a first cut at making the program menu driven. He also converted
-the code from K&R C to an ANSI/POSIX-conforming C. He re-christened
-the program TAC (Terminfo Action Checker). Eric also wrote a man
-page for TAC.
-
- In 1997 I decided to dust off the code and make it easier to
-use by the novice. I totally rewrote the menu system and added
-the editing features I originally planned for TED. I also did
-a total rewrite of the code that does the timings. In the process
-of rewriting the code I changed it to be more tightly coupled
-with ncurses. By this time someone had taken the name TAC so
-I re-christened the program TACK.
