somewhere in the initialisation - just tested and it works!
See the ncurses man page [1].

Good work, I was surprised to see dmenu used, but seems to work well
with it. As a suggestion/alternative, ncurses supports status bars
which can also serve as the command bar (which would be useful over an
ssh session). I was working on a simpler ncurses, but I've neglected
it recently. If that comes to fruition, I will like to make a
suckless editor based on that.
