| Subject: Curses applications to catch SHIFT + cursor keys
| 
| Hello,
| is there a way to make curses applications correctly catch SHIFT +
| cursor left / cursor right? I tested this with zsh and curses module,
| and it doesn't work. Also, following short test application:
| 
| http://ftp-archive.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD-Archive/old-releases/i386/1.0-RELEASE/ports/ss/sunfkeys/f1.c
| 
| shows that KEY_SLEFT, KEY_SRIGHT aren't catched. On X11 pressing the
| combinations outputs an escape series. Is there any solution?

It's doable, by calling use_extended_names (an ncurses feature).
However: it would only be useful in the ncurses port, since FreeBSD base install
uses a termcap file which lacks all of the extended keys.
