Technical details

CLEX is compiled either with support for the NCURSES mouse interface or for the xterm mouse interface. The preferred interface is the former, because it can communicate with several types of mice including xterm compatible terminals and gpm server. The required version 2 of this interface first appeared in NCURSES release 6.0.
