Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses) SYNOPSIS
#include <curses.h> WINDOW * getwin(FILE *fp); int putwin(WINDOW *win, FILE *fp); DESCRIPTION
These functions read and write data to and from files. The getwin() function reads window data that has been stored in the file to which fp points, and then creates a new window using that data. The putwin() function writes window data from the window win to the file pointed to by fp. RETURN VALUES
The getwin() function returns one of the following values: OK The function completed successfully. ERR An error occurred in the function. The putwin() function returns NULL if an error is detected. SEE ALSO

getwin, putwin - read a window from, and write a window to, a file 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> WINDOW *getwin(FILE *filep); int putwin(WINDOW *win, FILE *filep); DESCRIPTION
The getwin() function reads window-related data (written earlier by putwin()) from the stdio stream pointed to by filep. It then creates and initializes a new window using that data. The putwin() function writes all the data associated with the window pointed to by win to the stdio stream pointed to by filep. The getwin() function can later retrieve this data. PARAMETERS
filep Is a pointer to a stdio stream. win Is a pointer to a window. RETURN VALUES
On success, the getwin() function returns a pointer to the new window created. Otherwise, it returns a null pointer. On success, the putwin() function returns OK. Otherwise, it returns ERR. ERRORS
