       getyx, getparyx, getbegyx, getmaxyx - get curses cursor and window coordinates

       #include <curses.h>

       void getyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);
       void getparyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);
       void getbegyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);
       void getmaxyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);

       The  getyx macro places the current cursor position of the given window in the two integer
       variables y and x.

       If win is a subwindow, the getparyx macro places the beginning coordinates of the  subwin-
       dow  relative  to  the parent window into two integer variables y and x.  Otherwise, -1 is
       placed into y and x.

       Like getyx, the getbegyx and getmaxyx macros store the current beginning  coordinates  and
       size of the specified window.

       The  return  values  of	these  macros are undefined (i.e., they should not be used as the
       right-hand side of assignment statements).

       All of these interfaces are macros.  A "&" is not necessary before the variables y and x.

       The getyx, getparyx, getbegyx and getmaxyx functions are described in the XSI Curses stan-
       dard, Issue 4.

       This  implementation  also  provides getbegx, getbegy, getcurx, getcury, getmaxx, getmaxy,
       getparx and getpary for compatibility with older versions of curses.
