NAME
curs_printw, printw, wprintw, mvprintw, mvwprintw, vwprintw - print formatted output in curses windows SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lcurses [ library ... ] #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 */ ... ); DESCRIPTION
The printw(), wprintw(), mvprintw(), and mvwprintw() routines are analogous to printf() (see printf(3C) ). 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 vprintf(3C)) and performs a wprintw() using a variable argument list. The third argu- ment is a va_list, a pointer to a list of arguments, as defined in <varargs.h>. RETURN VALUES
All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and an integer value other than ERR upon successful completion. ATTRIBUTES
