curses and color

    I'm trying to use the Curses.pm module for an interface to the curses
    library (ncurses) on my freebsd based system.
    The problem is when I try and use the color_set() function to set the
    background/foreground color pair.

    The following code produces the error "curses constant 'color_set' is not
    defined by your vendor":

    #!/usr/bin/perl

    use Curses;
    $win = new Curses;

    start_color();

    $win->color_set(1,NULL);
    $win->addstr(20, 2, "This is a test");
    $win->refresh;
    endwin;

    I have checked the man page for ncurses and it clearly shows color_set() as
    being supported.
    Also the documentation for Curses.pm says anything supported by your curses
    library can be used with it.

    I need raw access to curses and not something like curses::widgets, as I
    want to draw everything myself.. (and not have a pre-made box or button..)

    Any ideas ?


    Regards,
    Chris
