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.  The Texttools package also
provides a thick binding to Linux kernel calls.  You can create a wide
variety of application programs using Texttools alone.
This package contains the runtime shared library.
