Is it possible to use X11 PDcurses with programs which
use the ncurses form and menu libraries?

I've tried just linking
-lform -lmenu -lXpanel -lXCurses -lXaw
instead of
-lform -lmenu -lpanel -lncurses
and adding Xinitscr() instead of initscr()
but I get an E_NO_ROOM error from post_form().
This code works OK using ordinary ncurses.

Do I need to do anything else to make this work?

    I don't know whether or not those libraries will work with
    PDCurses; but, at a minimum, you'll have to recompile them
    first, and #include PDCurses' curses.h instead of ncurses'.
