You might be able to use microthreads, which should be available within
a week or two. The URL is
http://world.std.com/~wware/uthread.html
I'm not familiar enough with curses to know if there'd be any
incompatibility. I'd be interested in how things turn out; a few weeks
ago I emailed an economics professor, the author an educational
microeconomics simulator currently running in Vax Basic, who would like
to make his simulation web-based and run interactive sessions across the
country. The URL for his simulator is
http://ecedweb.unomaha.edu/ecosim.htm
I myself haven't done anything like an interactive web-based game and it
would be silly to try to reinvent the whole thing myself. Is there a URL
where I can read more about your project? Thanks.

Resistance is futile. Capacitance is efficacious.
