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

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curses.h>

       int printw(const char *fmt, ...);
       int wprintw(WINDOW *win, const char *fmt, ...);
       int mvprintw(int y, int x, const char *fmt, ...);
       int mvwprintw(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const char *fmt, ...);
       int vwprintw(WINDOW *win, const char *fmt, va_list varglist);
       int vw_printw(WINDOW *win, const char *fmt, va_list 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 and wv_printw routines are analogous to vprintf [see printf(3S)] and  perform
       a wprintw using a variable argument list.  The third argument is a va_list, a pointer to a
       list of arguments, as defined in <stdarg.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       marked TO BE WITHDRAWN, and is to be replaced by a function vw_printw using the 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.   The  Single Unix Specification, Version 2 states that vw_printw  is preferred
       to vwprintw since the latter requires including <varargs.h>, which cannot be used  in  the
       same  file  as  <stdarg.h>.   This  implementation  uses <stdarg.h> for both, because that
       header is included in <curses.h>.
