       Interfaces documented on this reference page conform to industry	 stan‐
       dards as follows:

       getparyx, getbegyx, getmaxyx, getyx:  XCURSES4.2

       Refer  to  the  standards(5)  reference page for more information about
       industry standards and associated tags.

       The getyx macro places the cursor position of the window into  the  two
       integer variables y and x.

       If  win is a subwindow, the getparyx macro places the beginning coordi‐
       nates of the subwindow (relative to the parent  window)	into  the  two
       integer variables y and x. Otherwise; the macro places -1 into y and x.

       Like  getyx,  the getbegyx and getmaxyx macros store the current begin‐
       ning coordinates and size of the specified window.

       The header file	<curses.h>  automatically  includes  the  header  file

       All  of	these  interfaces  are macros, and applications do not have to
       specify & before the variables y and x.

       The return values of these macros are undefined (that is,  they	should
       not be used as the right-hand side of an assignment statements).

       Functions: curses(3)

       Others: standards(5)
