NAME
       define_key - define a keycode

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curses.h>

       int define_key(char *definition, int keycode);

DESCRIPTION
       This  is an extension to the curses library.  It permits an application to define keycodes
       with their corresponding control strings, so that the ncurses library will interpret  them
       just as it would the predefined codes in the terminfo database.

       If  the	given  string is null, any existing definition for the keycode is removed.  Simi-
       larly, if the given keycode is negative or zero, any existing string for the given defini-
       tion is removed.

RETURN VALUE
       The keycode must be greater than zero, else ERR is returned.

PORTABILITY
       These routines are specific to ncurses.	They were not supported on Version 7, BSD or Sys-
       tem V implementations.  It is recommended that any code depending on them  be  conditioned
       using NCURSES_VERSION.

SEE ALSO
       keyok(3X).
