Chapter 10: Screenplay: The screen–funcs Library

Abstract

Data Entry on terminal screens involved positioning the cursor on the screen at various places, displaying pieces of information in bold or reverse text. The usual method of positioning the cursor and setting attributes such as bold and reverse involves tput, a Unix utility that outputs screen codes for the particular terminal or terminal emulation you are using. Even with processors running at multigigahertz speeds, calling an external command multiple times can produce a noticeable delay.
