CURSES_PRINT(3)         NetBSD Library Functions Manual        CURSES_PRINT(3)

NAME
     curses_print, printw, wprintw, mvprintw, mvwprintw, unctrl -- curses
     print formatted strings on windows routines

LIBRARY
     Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <curses.h>

     int
     printw(const char *fmt, ...);

     int
     wprintw(WINDOW *win, const char *fmt, ...);

     int
     mvprintw(int y, int x, const char *fmt, ...);

     int
     mvwprintw(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const char *fmt, ...);

     char *
     unctrl(chtype ch);

DESCRIPTION
     These functions print formatted strings on stdscr or on the specified
     window.

     The printw() function formats and prints its arguments on stdscr.  The
     behavior is deliberately similar to that of printf(3), but, notably, the
     return value differs.

     The wprintw() function is the same as the printw() function, excepting
     that the resulting output is printed on the window specified by win.

     The mvprintw() and mvwprintw() functions are the same as the printw() and
     wprintw() functions, respectively, excepting that wmove() is called to
     move the cursor to the position specified by y, x before the output is
     printed on the window.

     The unctrl() function returns a printable string representation of the
     character ch.  If ch is a control character then it will be converted to
     the form ^Y.

RETURN VALUES
     Functions returning pointers will return NULL if an error is detected.
     The functions that return an int will return one of the following values:

           OK   The function completed successfully.

           ERR  An error occurred in the function.

STANDARDS

     part of the Single Unix Specification.
