If i recall the approach used by some test suites (i.e. the XCURSES test
suite) is to use a buffer to represent the screen and then to examine
it. As you say,thats licensed to The Open Group under terms that prevent
it being open sourced , you might always want to approach the head
copyright owners. With xts5 X.Org managed to get all
the parties to release the code of VSW5 which was in a similar situation
under an OSS license

>There is a test suite for the Single Unix Specification curses
