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 argu- ment 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. ATTRIBUTES

NAME
curs_printw, printw, wprintw, mvprintw, mvwprintw, vw_printw, vwprintw - Print formatted output in Curses windows SYNOPSIS
#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 <stdarg.h> include <curses.h> int vw_printw( WINDOW *win, char *fmt, va_list varglist ); #include <varargs.h> include <curses.h> int vwprintw( WINDOW *win, char *fmt, va_list varglist ); LIBRARY
Curses Library (libcurses) STANDARDS
Interfaces documented on this reference page conform to industry standards as follows: printw, wprintw, mvprintw, mvwprintw, vw_printw, vwprintw: XCURSES4.2 Refer to the standards(5) reference page for more information about industry standards and associated tags. DESCRIPTION
The printw, wprintw, mvprintw, and mvwprintw routines are analogous to printf family of routines (see printf(3)). In effect, the printw routines output the string that would be output by printf as though waddstr were used on the given window. The vw_printw routine is analogous to vprintf (see vprintf(3)) and performs the same operation as wprintw but uses a variable argument list. The va_list type is a pointer to a list of arguments and is defined in <stdarg.h>. The vwprintw routine is equivalent to vw_printw except that va_list is defined in <varargs.h>. The vw_printw routine is recommended for use in new applications. NOTES
The header file <curses.h> automatically includes the header file <stdio.h>. RETURN VALUES
All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and OK upon successful completion. SEE ALSO
