       Interfaces documented on this reference page conform to industry	 stan‐
       dards as follows:

       printw, wprintw, mvprintw, mvwprintw, vw_printw, vwprintw:  XCURSES4.2

       Refer  to  the  standards(5)  reference page for more information about
       industry standards and associated tags.

       The printw, wprintw, mvprintw, and mvwprintw routines are analogous  to
       printf  family  of routines (see printf(3)). In effect, the printw rou‐
       tines output the string that  would  be	output	by  printf  as	though
       waddstr were used on the given window.

       The vw_printw routine is analogous to vprintf (see vprintf(3)) and per‐
       forms the same operation as wprintw but uses a variable argument	 list.
       The  va_list type is a pointer to a list of arguments and is defined in

       The vwprintw routine is equivalent to vw_printw except that va_list  is
       defined in <varargs.h>. The vw_printw routine is recommended for use in
       new applications.

       The header file	<curses.h>  automatically  includes  the  header  file

       All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and OK upon successful

       Functions: curses(3), printf(3)

       Others: standards(5)
