CURSES_DEFAULT_COLOR... NetBSD Library Functions ManualCURSES_DEFAULT_COLOR...

NAME
     curses_default_colors, assume_default_colors, use_default_colors --
     curses default colors setting routines

LIBRARY
     Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <curses.h>

     int
     assume_default_colors(short fore, short back);

     int
     use_default_colors();

DESCRIPTION
     These functions tell the curses library to set the default colors or to
     use the terminal's default colors instead of using the default colors for
     curses applications (which are white foreground on black background).

     The function assume_default_colors(fore, back) sets the default colors to
     foreground color fore and background color back.  If a value of -1 is
     used for a color, then the terminal default color is used for that color.

     The function use_default_colors() sets both the foreground and background
     colors to the terminal default colors.  This is equivalent to
     assume_default_colors(-1, -1).

RETURN VALUES
     These functions return OK on success and ERR on failure.

SEE ALSO
     curses_color(3)

STANDARDS
     These functions are based on ncurses extensions to the curses standards.

HISTORY
     These functions first appeared in NetBSD 2.0.

NetBSD 5.0.1                   October 13, 2002                   NetBSD 5.0.1
