Is there any library that would allow me to use the extended terminal

seems that it only works with D1 and the Linux implementation was
never finished to begin with.

I'd like to know as well. Is there no ncurses wrapper that works for dmd2?

There isn't a working wrapper of ncurses, and my understanding is there hasn't been anything as fully featured that worked cross platform in any language.
