       curses_version, use_extended_names - miscellaneous curses extensions

       #include <curses.h>

       const char * curses_version(void);
       int use_extended_names(bool enable);

       These  functions  are  extensions to the curses library which do not fit easily into other

       Use curses_version() to get the version number, including  patch  level	of  the  library,
       e.g., 5.0.19991023

       The  use_extended_names() function controls whether the calling application is able to use
       user-defined or nonstandard names which may be compiled	into  the  terminfo  description,
       i.e., via the terminfo or termcap interfaces.  Normally these names are available for use,
       since the essential descision is made by using the -x option of tic  to	compile  extended
       terminal  definitions.	However  you can disable this feature to ensure compatiblity with
       other implementations of curses

       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.
