       curs_util, unctrl, keyname, filter, use_env, putwin, getwin, delay_out‐
       put, flushinp - curses miscellaneous utility routines

       cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lcurses [ library ... ]
       #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 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 writ‐
       ten 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 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.

       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       │MT-Level       │ Unsafe		 │

       curs_initscr(3CURSES),	  curs_scr_dump(3CURSES),     curses(3CURSES),

       The header <curses.h> automatically includes the headers	 <stdio.h> and

       Note that unctrl() is a macro, which is defined in <unctrl.h>.
