int endwin(void);


bool isendwin(void);


DESCRIPTION


The endwin() function restores the terminal after Curses activity by at
least restoring the saved shell terminsl mode, flushing any output to the
terminal, and moving the cursor to the first column of the last line of
the screen. Refreshing a window resumes program mode. The application
must call endwin() for each terminal being used before exiting. If
newterm(3XCURSES) is called more than once for the same terminal, the
first screen created must be the last one for which endwin() is called.


The isendiwin() function indicates whether or not a screen has been
refreshed since the last call to endwin().

RETURN VALUES


Upon successful completion, the endwin() function returns OK. Otherwise,
it returns ERR.


The isendwin() function returns TRUE if endwin() has been called without
any subsequent refresh. Otherwise, it returns FALSE.

ERRORS


Non errors are defined.
