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

     #include <curses.h>

     int baudrate(void);
     char erasechar(void);
     int has_ic(void);
     int has_il(void);
     char killchar(void);
     char *longname(void);
     chtype 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

     With the erasechar routine, the user's current erase character is

     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.

     With the killchar routine, the user's current line kill character is

     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 terminals.

     If a given terminal doesn't support a video attribute that an application
     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 an integer
     value other than ERR upon successful completion.

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

     Note that termattrs may be a macro.
