curs_scanw(3X)							curs_scanw(3X)

     curs_scanw:  scanw, wscanw, mvscanw, mvwscanw, vwscanw - convert
     formatted input from a curses widow

     #include <curses.h>

     int scanw(char *fmt [, arg] ...);
     int wscanw(WINDOW *win, char *fmt [, arg] ...);
     int mvscanw(int y, int x, char *fmt [, arg] ...);
     int mvwscanw(WINDOW *win, int y, int x,
	  char *fmt [, arg] ...);
     int vwscanw(WINDOW *win, char *fmt, va_list varglist);

     The scanw, wscanw and mvscanw routines correspond to scanf [see
     scanf(3S)].  The effect of these routines is as though wgetstr were
     called on the window, and the resulting line used as input for the scan.
     Fields which do not map to a variable in the fmt field are lost.

     The vwscanw routine is similar to vwprintw in that it performs a wscanw
     using a variable argument list.  The third argument is a va_list, a
     pointer to a list of arguments, as defined in <varargs.h>.

     vwscanw returns ERR on failure and an integer equal to the number of
     fields scanned on success.

     Applications may interrogate the return value from the scanw, wscanw,
     mvscanw and  mvwscanw routines to determine the number of fields which
     were mapped in the call.

     The header file <curses.h> automatically includes the header files
     <stdio.h> and <unctrl.h>.
