CURSES_SCANW(3) 		   BSD Library Functions Manual 		  CURSES_SCANW(3)

NAME
     curses_scanw, scanw, wscanw, mvscanw, mvwscanw -- curses read formatted data from screen
     routines

LIBRARY
     Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <curses.h>

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

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

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

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

DESCRIPTION
     These functions read formatted data from stdscr or from the specified window.

     The scanw() function is the same as the scanf() function, excepting that the input data
     stream is read from the current cursor position on stdscr,

     The wscanw() function is the same as the scanw() function, excepting that the data stream is
     read from the window specified by win.

     The mvscanw() and mvwscanw() functions are the same as the scanw() and mvscanw() functions,
     respectively, excepting that wmove() is called to move the cursor to the position specified
     by y, x before the data is read from the window.

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_print(3), scanf(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.
