curs_extend(3X)						       curs_extend(3X)

       curs_extend:  curses_version, use_extended_names - miscellaneous curses

       #include <ncurses.h>

       const char * curses_version(void);
       int use_extended_names(bool enable);

       These functions are extensions to the curses library which do  not  fit
       easily into other categories.

       Use  curses_version()  to get the version number, including patch level
       of the library, e.g., 5.0.19991023

       The use_extended_names() function controls whether the calling applica‐
       tion is able to use user-defined or nonstandard names which may be com‐
       piled into the terminfo description, i.e., via the terminfo or  termcap
       interfaces.   Normally  these  names  are  available for use, since the
       essential descision is made by using the -x option of  tic  to  compile
       extended terminal definitions.  However you can disable this feature to
       ensure compatiblity with other implementations of curses

       These routines are specific to ncurses.	They  were  not	 supported  on
       Version 7, BSD or System V implementations.  It is recommended that any
       code depending on them be conditioned using NCURSES_VERSION.
