       baudrate,   erasechar,	erasewchar,   has_ic,	has_il,  killchar,  killwchar,	longname,
       term_attrs, termattrs, termname - curses environment query routines

       #include <curses.h>

       int baudrate(void);
       char erasechar(void);
       int erasewchar(wchar_t *ch);
       bool has_ic(void);
       bool has_il(void);
       char killchar(void);
       int killwchar(wchar_t *ch);
       char *longname(void);
       attr_t term_attrs(void);
       chtype termattrs(void);
       char *termname(void);

       The baudrate routine returns the output speed of the terminal.  The number returned is  in
       bits per second, for example 9600, and is an integer.

       The erasechar routine returns the user's current erase character.

       The  erasewchar	routine  stores the current erase character in the location referenced by
       ch.  If no erase character has been defined, the routine fails and the location referenced
       by ch is not changed.

       The has_ic routine is true if the terminal has insert- and delete- character capabilities.

       The  has_il  routine  is true if the terminal has insert- and delete-line capabilities, or
       can simulate them using scrolling regions.  This might be used to determine if it would be
       appropriate to turn on physical scrolling using scrollok.

       The killchar routine returns the user's current line kill character.

       The killwchar routine stores the current line-kill character in the location referenced by
       ch.  If no line-kill character has been defined, the routine fails and the location refer-
       enced by ch is not changed.

       The  longname  routine returns a pointer to a static area containing a verbose description
       of the current terminal.  The maximum length of a verbose description is  128  characters.
       It  is defined only after the call to initscr or newterm.  The area is overwritten by each
       call to newterm and is not restored by set_term, so the	value  should  be  saved  between
       calls to newterm if longname is going to be used with multiple terminals.

       If  a given terminal doesn't support a video attribute that an application program is try-
       ing to use, curses may substitute a different video attribute for it.  The  termattrs  and
       term_attrs functions return a logical OR of all video attributes supported by the terminal
       using A_ and WA_ constants respectively.  This information is useful when a curses program
       needs complete control over the appearance of the screen.

       The termname routine returns the value of the environmental variable TERM (truncated to 14

       longname and termname return NULL on error.

       Routines that return an integer return ERR upon failure and OK (SVr4  only  specifies  "an
       integer value other than ERR") upon successful completion.

       Note that termattrs may be a macro.

       The XSI Curses standard, Issue 4 describes these functions.  It changes the return type of
       termattrs to the new type attr_t.
