NAME
       printw,	wprintw,  mvprintw,  mvwprintw,  vwprintw,  vw_printw - print formatted output in
       curses windows

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curses.h>

       int printw(char *fmt [, arg] ...);
       int wprintw(WINDOW *win, char *fmt [, arg] ...);
       int mvprintw(int y, int x, char *fmt [, arg] ...);
       int mvwprintw(WINDOW *win, int y, int x,
	     char *fmt [, arg] ...);

       #include <varargs.h>
       int vwprintw(WINDOW *win, char *fmt, varglist);
       int vw_printw(WINDOW *win, char *fmt, varglist);

DESCRIPTION
       The printw, wprintw,  mvprintw  and  mvwprintw  routines  are  analogous  to  printf  [see
       printf(3S)].   In  effect,  the string that would be output by printf is output instead as
       though waddstr were used on the given window.

       The vwprintw routine is analogous to vprintf [see printf(3S)] and performs a wprintw using
       a  variable  argument list.  The third argument is a va_list, a pointer to a list of argu-
       ments, as defined in <varargs.h>.

RETURN VALUE
       Routines that return an integer return ERR upon failure and OK (SVr4  only  specifies  "an
       integer value other than ERR") upon successful completion.

PORTABILITY
       The  XSI  Curses  standard,  Issue  4 describes these functions.  The function vwprintw is
       marked TO BE WITHDRAWN, and is to be replaced by a function vw_printw using the <stdarg.h>
       interface.
