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 behaviour is the same as that of printf(). 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.
