This would be because page_hight (sic) is zero, not because the type
of START_IDX has changed.
} START_IDX=$(( 1+((idx-1)/page_hight)*page_hight ))
} ... fixes it
I suspect not really. Something else changed so that the "page" is
no longer empty, or whatever.
} playing with associative arrays, yesterday I had to single quote:
} varis 'array[value]' line456 5
} ... but only with arrays--scalars were fine--or I got a message to the
} effect that 'no values were matched'.
Without the quotes, array[value] is being treated as a file glob, and is
looking for a file named one of arrayv, arraya, arrayl, arrayu, arraye.
The "no matches found" error is because none of those files exists.
} In the same vein, if one of these 'zcurses' functions crashes, what the
} docs say about the terminal being in a unstable state sure is true.
} Things look fine, but, for example, history recall goes screwy.
"stty sane" will often fix you up in this situation. It might also work
to use "ttyctl -f" in your startup file (i.e., before any zcurses stuff
is run) but I'm not sure that handles the case where a zsh builtin has
itself messed up the terminal state.
