CURSES_TERMCAP(3)       NetBSD Library Functions Manual      CURSES_TERMCAP(3)

NAME
     curses_termcap, fullname, getcap, longname -- curses termcap querying
     routines

LIBRARY
     Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <curses.h>

     char *
     fullname(char *termbuf, char *name);

     char *
     getcap(char *name);

     char *
     longname(void);

DESCRIPTION
     The fullname() function takes the termcap entry in termbuf and copies the
     full name of the terminal from the entry into the target variable name.
     The full name of the terminal is assumed to be the last alias in the
     termcap entry name.  It is assumed that the name variable has sufficient
     storage to hold the full name of the terminal.

     A termcap entry can be retrieved by calling the getcap() function with
     the name of the capability in name.  The matching capability string for
     the terminal is returned.

     The longname() function returns a verbose description of the terminal
     which is taken from the last name alias in the termcap description for
     the terminal.  This string will be at most 128 characters long and will
     only be defined after a call to initscr() or newterm().

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.
