curs_printw(3X)						       curs_printw(3X)

       printw,	wprintw, mvprintw, mvwprintw, vwprintw, vw_printw - print for‐
       matted output in curses windows

       #include <ncurses.h>

       int printw(char *fmt [, arg] ...);
       int wprintw(WINDOW *win, char *fmt [, arg] ...);
       int mvprintw(int y, int x, char *fmt [, arg] ...);
       int mvwprintw(WINDOW *win, int y, int x,
	     char *fmt [, arg] ...);

       #include <varargs.h>
       int vwprintw(WINDOW *win, char *fmt, varglist);
       int vw_printw(WINDOW *win, char *fmt, varglist);

       The printw, wprintw, mvprintw and mvwprintw routines are	 analogous  to
       printf [see printf(3S)].	 In effect, the string that would be output by
       printf is output instead as though waddstr were used on the given  win‐

       The  vwprintw routine is analogous to vprintf [see printf(3S)] and per‐
       forms a wprintw using a variable argument list.	The third argument  is
       a va_list, a pointer to a list of arguments, as defined in <varargs.h>.

       Routines	 that  return  an integer return ERR upon failure and OK (SVr4
       only specifies "an integer value other than ERR") upon successful  com‐

       The  XSI Curses standard, Issue 4 describes these functions.  The func‐
       tion vwprintw is marked TO BE WITHDRAWN, and is to  be  replaced	 by  a
       function vw_printw using the <stdarg.h> interface.
