...and a few other files. I searched "curses" and set it to "This Mac" | File Name and all it found was ncurses.py's enclosing folder, curses.
I really want to know what these files do, but without the module "curses.py", i can't run it correctly! Please tell my why this stuff is here, and, if possible, send me the module.

P.S. I Emailed my email address to you with the subject ""Curses" thread in manning forums explains what this is for-- please don't delete"
