    Thanks for letting us know about this practical & cool CLI tool.

    I tried to install on Ubuntu 18.04 yet run into the following error:

    [email protected]:~$ cd cfiles
    [email protected]:~/cfiles$ gcc cf.c -lncurses -o cf
    cf.c:16:10: fatal error: curses.h: No such file or directory
    compilation terminated.

    Any idea how to overcome this problem?

      Install the ncurses library with the following command.

      $ sudo apt-get install libncurses5-dev libncursesw5-dev    #Debian/Ubuntu
      # yum install ncurses-devel ncurses                        #RHEL/CentOS
