Subject: libncurses5-dev: man page variables boolnames etc show arrays
Date: Sun, 28 May 2006 08:59:28 +1000
Package: libncurses5-dev
Version: 5.5-2
Severity: normal
File: /usr/share/man/man3/tigetstr.3ncurses.gz

"man tigetstr" shows

	char *boolnames, *boolcodes, *boolfnames

which going by the term.h header file I think are actually arrays of
pointers, like

	char *boolnames[], *boolcodes[], *boolfnames[]
