+The Structured Terminal Forms Language/Library
+
+STFL is a library which implements a curses-based widget set for text
+terminals. The STFL API can be used from C, SPL, Python, Perl and
+Ruby. The public STFL API is only 14 simple function calls big and and
+there are already generic SWIG bindings. Thus it is very easy to port
+to additional scripting languages.
+
+This package should build with no special effort on a stock Slackware
+installation. However, none of the scripting language bindings are enabled -
+for that, you'll need SWIG and the language of interest.
