CURSES_STANDOUT(3)      NetBSD Library Functions Manual     CURSES_STANDOUT(3)

NAME
     curses_standout, standout, standend, wstandout, wstandend -- curses
     standout attribute manipulation routines

LIBRARY
     Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <curses.h>

     int
     standout(void);

     int
     standend(void);

     int
     wstandout(void);

     int
     wstandend(void);

DESCRIPTION
     These functions manipulate the standout attribute on stdscr or on the
     specified window.

     The standout() function turns on the standout attribute on stdscr.  The
     standend() function turns off the standout attribute on stdscr.

     The wstandout() and wstandend() functions are equivalent to standout()
     and standend(), respectively, excepting that the attribute is manipulated
     on the window specified by win.

     The standout() and standend() functions are equivalent to
     attron(A_STANDOUT) and attroff(A_STANDOUT), respectively.

RETURN VALUES
     These functions always return 1.

     curses_attributes(3), curses_underscore(3)

STANDARDS
     The NetBSD Curses library complies with the X/Open Curses specification,
     part of the Single Unix Specification.

HISTORY
     The Curses package appeared in 4.0BSD.

BUGS
     On modern terminals that support other attributes, there is no difference
     between characters displayed with the standout attribute set and those
     displayed with one of the other attributes set (usually bold).  It is
     best to avoid using standout if the terminal supports other attributes.
