CURSES_TERMCAP(3)		   BSD Library Functions Manual 		CURSES_TERMCAP(3)

NAME
     curses_termcap, fullname, getcap -- curses termcap querying routines

LIBRARY
     Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <curses.h>

     char *
     fullname(char *termbuf, char *name);

     char *
     getcap(char *name);

DESCRIPTION
     The fullname() function takes the termcap entry in termbuf and copies the full name of the
     terminal from the entry into the target variable name.  The full name of the terminal is
     assumed to be the last alias in the termcap entry name.  It is assumed that the name vari-
     able has sufficient storage to hold the full name of the terminal.

     A termcap entry can be retrieved by calling the getcap() function with the name of the capa-
     bility in name.  The matching capability string for the terminal is returned.

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

STANDARDS
     The Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses) library complies with the X/Open Curses specifica-
     tion, part of the Single Unix Specification.

HISTORY
     The Curses package appeared in 4.0BSD.
