curses_termcap, fullname, getcap -- curses termcap querying routines
Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses)
fullname(char *termbuf, char *name);
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.
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.
The Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses) library complies with the X/Open Curses specifica-
tion, part of the Single Unix Specification.
The Curses package appeared in 4.0BSD.
