The curses library is a terminal control library for Unix-like systems used in text based user interface applications. It has been used in many games in the past. It was developed by Ken Arnold and originally released with BSD Unix.
Where can I find the sources of the curses library (either as part of a Unix distribution release or the original sources as published by the author or some other official source)? Sources with history (in a version control system) would be even better.
I can only find sources for successors like ncurses or pcurses. Neither the Wikipedia page of curses, nor the overview page at rocketaware.com resulted in something usable and searches for "freebsd libcurses" or "debian libcurses" all point to ncurses, not the original curses. The library is probably not in use anymore, but I would still like to study the original source code.
