PDCurses is compiled with wide character support, meaning get_wch() is
available. UTF-8 is forced as the encoding.
Starting from windows-curses 2.0, in the name of pragmatism, these wheels (but
not Gohlke's) include a hack to make resizing work for applications developed
against ncurses without Python code changes: Whenever getch(), getkey(), or
get_wch() return KEY_RESIZE, resize_term(0, 0) is called automatically.
This gives behavior similar to the automatic SIGWINCH handling in ncurses
(see PDCurses' resize_term() documentation). This
implements the hack.
To add the same hack in Python code (which is harmless, and needed if you want
resizing to work with older windows-curses versions or with Gohlke's wheels),
call curses.resize_term(0, 0) after receiving KEY_RESIZE, and ignore any
curses.error exceptions. ncurses reliably fails and does nothing for
resize_term(0, 0), so this is safe on *nix.
Please tell me if the resize_term(0, 0) hackery causes you any trouble.
