       char erasechar(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 physi‐
       cal 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  applica‐
       tion  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 environment 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.

       Note that termattrs() may be a macro.
