def_prog_mode, def_shell_mode, reset_prog_mode, reset_shell_mode - save/restore terminal modes SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file... -I /usr/xpg4/include -L /usr/xpg4/lib -R /usr/xpg4/lib -lcurses [ library... ] c89 [ flag... ] file... -lcurses [ library... ] #include <curses.h> int def_prog_mode(void); int def_shell_mode(void); int reset_prog_mode(void); int reset_shell_mode(void); DESCRIPTION
The def_prog_mode() and def_shell_mode() functions save the current terminal modes as "program" (within X/Open Curses) or "shell" (outside X/Open Curses). The modes are saved automatically by initscr(3XCURSES), newterm(3XCURSES), and setupterm(3XCURSES). The reset_prog_mode() and reset_shell_mode() functions reset the current terminal modes to "program" (within X/Open Curses) or "shell" (outside X/Open Curses). The endwin(3XCURSES) function automatically calls the reset_shell_mode() function and the doupdate(3XCURSES) func- tion calls the reset_prog_mode() function after calling endwin(). RETURN VALUES
On success, these functions return OK. Otherwise, they return ERR. ERRORS
