curs_util(3X)							 curs_util(3X)

     curs_util:	 unctrl, keyname, filter, use_env, putwin, getwin,
     delay_output, draino, flushinp - miscellaneous curses utility routines

     #include <curses.h>

     char *unctrl(chtype c);
     char *keyname(int c);
     int filter(void);
     void use_env(char bool);
     int putwin(WINDOW *win, FILE *filep);
     WINDOW *getwin(FILE *filep);
     int delay_output(int ms);
     int draino(int ms);
     int flushinp(void);

     The unctrl macro expands to a character string which is a printable
     representation of the character c.	 Control characters are displayed in
     the ^X notation.  Printing characters are displayed as is.

     With the keyname routine, a character string corresponding to the key c
     is returned.

     The filter routine, if used, is called before initscr or newterm are
     called.  It makes curses think that there is a one-line screen.  curses
     does not use any terminal capabilities that assume that they know on what
     line of the screen the cursor is positioned.

     The use_env routine, if used, is called before initscr or newterm are
     called.  When called with FALSE as an argument, the values of lines and
     columns specified in the terminfo database will be used, even if
     environment variables LINES and COLUMNS (used by default) are set, or if
     curses is running in a window (in which case default behavior would be to
     use the window size if LINES and COLUMNS are not set).

     With the putwin routine, all data associated with window win is written
     into the file to which filep points.  This information can be later
     retrieved using the getwin function.

     The getwin routine reads window related data stored in the file by
     putwin.  The routine then creates and initializes a new window using that
     data.  It returns a pointer to the new window.

     The delay_output routine inserts an ms millisecond pause in output.  This
     routine should not be used extensively because padding characters are
     used rather than a CPU pause.

     The draino routine returns when ms are needed to clear the output
     completely.  Current valid value for ms is 0.

     The flushinp routine throws away any typeahead that has been typed by the
     user and has not yet been read by the program.

     Except for flushinp, routines that return an integer return ERR upon
     failure and an integer value other than ERR upon successful completion.

     flushinp always returns OK.

     Routines that return pointers return NULL on error.

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

     Note that unctrl is a macro, which is defined in unctrl.h.
