NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for wprintw (netbsd section 3)

CURSES_PRINT(3) 		   BSD Library Functions Manual 		  CURSES_PRINT(3)

NAME
     curses_print, printw, wprintw, mvprintw, mvwprintw, unctrl -- curses print formatted strings
     on windows routines

LIBRARY
     Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <curses.h>

     int
     printw(const char *fmt, ...);

     int
     wprintw(WINDOW *win, const char *fmt, ...);

     int
     mvprintw(int y, int x, const char *fmt, ...);

     int
     mvwprintw(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const char *fmt, ...);

     char *
     unctrl(chtype ch);

DESCRIPTION
     These functions print formatted strings on stdscr or on the specified window.

     The printw() function formats and prints its arguments on stdscr.	The behavior is deliber-
     ately similar to that of printf(3), but, notably, the return value differs.

     The wprintw() function is the same as the printw() function, excepting that the resulting
     output is printed on the window specified by win.

     The mvprintw() and mvwprintw() functions are the same as the printw() and wprintw() func-
     tions, respectively, excepting that wmove() is called to move the cursor to the position
     specified by y, x before the output is printed on the window.

     The unctrl() function returns a printable string representation of the character ch.  If ch
     is a control character then it will be converted to the form ^Y.

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_scanw(3), printf(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.
