CURSES_SCANW(3) NetBSD Library Functions Manual CURSES_SCANW(3)
curses_scanw, scanw, wscanw, mvscanw, mvwscanw -- curses read formatted data from screen routines
Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses)
#include <curses.h> int scanw(const char *fmt, ...); int wscanw(WINDOW *win, const char *fmt, ...); int mvscanw(int y, int x, const char *fmt, ...); int mvwscanw(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const char *fmt, ...);
These functions read formatted data from stdscr or from the specified window. The scanw() function is the same as the scanf() function, excepting that the input data stream is read from the current cursor position on stdscr, The wscanw() function is the same as the scanw() function, excepting that the data stream is read from the window specified by win. The mvscanw() and mvwscanw() functions are the same as the scanw() and mvscanw() functions, respectively, excepting that wmove() is called to move the cursor to the position specified by y, x before the data is read from the window.
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.
