Getting Terminal information(3) 	      BrlAPI		  Getting Terminal information(3)

NAME
       Getting Terminal information -

       How to get information about the connected Terminal.

   Macros
       #define BRLAPI_MAXNAMELENGTH   31

   Functions
       int BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi_getDriverName (char *buffer, size_t size)
       int BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi__getDriverName (brlapi_handle_t *handle, char *buffer, size_t
	   size)
       int BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi_getDisplaySize (unsigned int *x, unsigned int *y)
       int BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi__getDisplaySize (brlapi_handle_t *handle, unsigned int *x,
	   unsigned int *y)

Detailed Description
       Before using Raw mode or key codes, the application should always check the type of the
       connected terminal, to be sure it is really the one it expects.

       One should also check for display size, so as to adjust further displaying on it.

Macro Definition Documentation
   #define BRLAPI_MAXNAMELENGTH   31
       Maximum name length for names embeded in BrlAPI packets, not counting any termination \0
       character

Function Documentation
   int BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi__getDisplaySize (brlapi_handle_t *handle, unsigned int *x, unsigned
       int *y)
   int BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi__getDriverName (brlapi_handle_t *handle, char *buffer, size_tsize)
   int BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi_getDisplaySize (unsigned int *x, unsigned int *y)
       Return the size of the braille display

   int BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi_getDriverName (char *buffer, size_tsize)
       Return the complete name of the driver used by brltty

       This function fills its argument with the whole name of the braille terminal if available,
       terminated with a '\0'.

       Parameters:
	   buffer is the buffer given by the application;
	   size is the maximum size for the name buffer.

       Returns:
	   -1 on error, or a positive value giving the size of the needed buffer, if the supplied
	   one is to small (same as snprintf()).
