Do we need pancurses for mac? The docs say it is for Windows and Linux.  If not what would mac's use instead?

 Compiling pancurses v0.16.1
error[E0308]: mismatched types
   --> /Users/mitch/.cargo/registry/src/github.com-1ecc6299db9ec823/pancurses-0.16.1/src/window.rs:372:39
    |
372 |         unsafe { curses::wmouse_trafo(self._window, &mut mut_y, &mut mut_x, to_screen as u8); }
    |                                       ^^^^^^^^^^^^ expected *-ptr, found `i8`
    |
    = note: expected raw pointer `*mut *mut i8`
               found raw pointer `*mut i8`


Posted on the blog as well.

Thanks,

Mitch

I’m guessing this is about the Rust Crash Course, not the book, right?

 

I thought pancurses used to work on Mac, I’m surprised it doesn’t. You may be able to adapt the exercise to work with a similar library, such as ncurses.
