curs_termattrs(3X)					    curs_termattrs(3X)

       baudrate,  erasechar,  has_ic,  has_il,	killchar, longname, termattrs,
       termname - curses environment query routines

       #include <ncurses.h>

       int baudrate(void);
       char erasechar(void);
       bool has_ic(void);
       bool has_il(void);
       char killchar(void);
       char *longname(void);
       attr_t termattrs(void);
       char *termname(void);

       The baudrate routine returns the output speed  of  the  terminal.   The
       number  returned	 is  in	 bits  per second, for example 9600, and is an

       The erasechar routine returns the user's current erase character.

       The has_ic routine is true if the  terminal  has	 insert-  and  delete-
       character capabilities.

       The  has_il routine is true if the terminal has insert- and delete-line
       capabilities, or can simulate them using scrolling regions.  This might
       be  used	 to  determine	if it would be appropriate to turn on physical
       scrolling using scrollok.

       The killchar routine returns the user's current line kill character.

       The longname routine returns a pointer to a static  area	 containing  a
       verbose	description  of the current terminal.  The maximum length of a
       verbose description is 128 characters.  It is defined  only  after  the
       call  to	 initscr  or newterm.  The area is overwritten by each call to
       newterm and is not restored by set_term, so the value should  be	 saved
       between	calls to newterm if longname is going to be used with multiple

       If a given terminal doesn't support a video attribute that an  applica‐
       tion  program is trying to use, curses may substitute a different video
       attribute for it.  The termattrs function returns a logical OR  of  all
       video attributes supported by the terminal.  This information is useful
       when a curses program needs complete control over the appearance of the

       The  termname  routine  returns the value of the environmental variable
       TERM (truncated to 14 characters).

       longname and termname return NULL on error.

       Routines that return an integer return ERR upon failure	and  OK	 (SVr4
       only  specifies "an integer value other than ERR") upon successful com‐

       Note that termattrs may be a macro.

       The XSI Curses standard, Issue 4 describes these functions.  It changes
       the return type of termattrs to the new type attr_t.
