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 term- cap entry name. It is assumed that the name variable has sufficient storage to hold the full name of the termi- nal. A termcap entry can be retrieved by calling the getcap() function with the name of the capability 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.
