The Texttools packages are a GPL, ncurses-based library for the Linux console. Texttools contain more than 600 procedures and functions to create windows, draw scroll bars, handle the mouse and keyboard events, play sounds, and much more.

    2014-05-04 - Nicolas Boulenguez <> libtexttools (2.1.0-5) unstable; urgency=medium * Build with gnat-4.9. Library and -dev packages renamed due to Ada policy. * rules: run-tests target obsoleted by sadt from devscripts. get-orig-source target not needed with a valid watch file. * sources/options: let dpkg select default compressor. * Standards-Version: 3.9.5 (no changes).

    2013-09-04 - Nicolas Boulenguez <> libtexttools (2.1.0-4) unstable; urgency=low * preinst: typo in directory name. Closes: #721781.

(Vcs-*): Added Vcs-Browser, corrected Vcs-Mtn (Build-Depends): unversioned libncurses-dev * patches/*: DEP-3 conformant headers Call Ada cos/sin instead of C ones to avoid a dependency. * copyright: DEP-5 conformant
