MVPRINTW(3XCURSES) X/Open Curses Library Functions MVPRINTW(3XCURSES)

NAME


mvprintw, mvwprintw, printw, wprintw - print formatted output window

SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag... ] file... -I /usr/xpg4/include -L /usr/xpg4/lib \
-R /usr/xpg4/lib -lcurses [ library... ]

c89 [ flag... ] file... -lcurses [ library... ]

#include <curses.h>

int mvprintw(int y, int x, char *fmt, ...);


int mvwprintw(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, char *fmt, ...);


int printw(char *fmt, ...);


int wprintw(WINDOW *win, char *fmt, ...);


PARAMETERS


y
Is the y (row) coordinate position of the string's placement in
the window.


x
Is the x (column) coordinate position of the string's placement in
the window.


fmt
Is a printf() format string.


win
Is a pointer to the window in which the string is to be written.


DESCRIPTION


The mvprintw(), mvwprintw(), printw(), and wprintw() functions are
analogous to printf(3C). The effect of these functions is as though
sprintf() were used to format the string, and then waddstr(3XCURSES) were
used to add that multi-byte string to the current or specified window at
the current or specified cursor position.

RETURN VALUES


Upon successful completion, these functions return OK. Otherwise, they
return ERR.

ERRORS


No errors are defined.
