panel -- z-order for curses windows
Z-order for curses windows (libpanel, -lpanel)
Overlapping curses windows have no notion of z-order, what you see on the
screen depends on the order of updates. The panel library is an exten-
sion built on top of curses(3) that adds z-order to curses windows.
Each panel has an associated curses window. All currently visible panels
form a ``deck''. Panels have z-order only relative to other panels in
the deck and to stdscr. The latter doesn't have a panel of its own but
implicitly lies below all other panels in the deck. If you mix plain
curses windows and panels, the visual results are undefined since the
panel library is not aware of windows that are not associated with pan-
