CURSES_SCANW(3) 					   BSD Library Functions Manual 					   CURSES_SCANW(3)

curses_scanw, scanw, wscanw, mvscanw, mvwscanw -- curses read formatted data from screen routines LIBRARY
Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses) SYNOPSIS
#include <curses.h> int scanw(const char *fmt, ...); int wscanw(WINDOW *win, const char *fmt, ...); int mvscanw(int y, int x, const char *fmt, ...); int mvwscanw(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const char *fmt, ...); DESCRIPTION
These functions read formatted data from stdscr or from the specified window. The scanw() function is the same as the scanf() function, excepting that the input data stream is read from the current cursor position on stdscr, The wscanw() function is the same as the scanw() function, excepting that the data stream is read from the window specified by win. The mvscanw() and mvwscanw() functions are the same as the scanw() and mvscanw() functions, respectively, excepting that wmove() is called to move the cursor to the position specified by y, x before the data is read from the window. RETURN VALUES
Functions returning pointers will return NULL if an error is detected. The functions that return an int will return one of the following values: OK The function completed successfully. ERR An error occurred in the function. SEE ALSO
curses_cursor(3), curses_print(3), scanf(3) STANDARDS
The NetBSD Curses library complies with the X/Open Curses specification, part of the Single Unix Specification. HISTORY
The Curses package appeared in 4.0BSD. BSD

mvscanw, mvwscanw, scanw, wscanw - convert formatted input from a 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 mvscanw(int y, int x, char *fmt, ...); int mvwscanw(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, char *fmt, ...); int scanw(char *fmt, ...); int wscanw(WINDOW *win, char *fmt, ...); PARAMETERS
y Is the y (row) coordinate of the position of the character to be read. x Is the x (column) coordinate of the position of the character to be read. fmt Is a scanf() format string. win Is a pointer to the window in which the character is to be read. DESCRIPTION
These functions are similar to scanf(3C). Their effect is as though mvwgetstr(3XCURSES) were called to get a multi-byte character string from the current or specified window at the current or specified cursor position, and then sscanf() were used to interpret and convert that string. RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, these functions return OK. Otherwise, they return ERR. ERRORS
No errors are defined. ATTRIBUTES
