Drat provides an Object-Oriented (OO) interface to the curses library written in C++. Drat is not simply a C++ wrapper around the curses library. Drat is intended to allow OO programmers to quickly develop curses-based user interfaces (UI), either before developing more sophisticated graphical UI, or as an additional feature of advanced interactive programs.
