Two things I learned while working with curses:

1. You can't just print values to debug your program  :o)
2. Systems return different values for the same keys
     (even the same operating system on different hardware)

Maybe this will help you:

# keyvalues.py
import logging
import curses

logger = logging.getLogger()
hdlr = logging.FileHandler('keyvalues.log')

def main(scr):
    ch = scr.getch()
    while ch != ord(' '): # press space bar to exit
        ch = scr.getch()
