CURS_PRINTW(3CURSES) Curses Library Functions CURS_PRINTW(3CURSES)


NAME


curs_printw, printw, wprintw, mvprintw, mvwprintw, vwprintw - print
formatted output in curses windows

SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lcurses [ library ... ]
#include <curses.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 */ ... );


DESCRIPTION


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


The vwprintw() routine is analogous to vprintf() (see vprintf(3C)) and
performs 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>.

RETURN VALUES


All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and an integer value
other than ERR upon successful completion.
