       getyx - get cursor position

       #include <cursesX.h>

       int getyx(win, y, x)
       WINDOW *win;
       int y, x;

       The  cursor  coordinates  of the window are placed in the two integer variables and This routine is implemented as a macro, so no ampersand
       (&) is necessary before the variables.

Return Values
       No return value is defined for this function.

getyx, getparyx, getbegyx, getmaxyx - get curses cursor and window coordinates SYNOPSIS
#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); DESCRIPTION
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 subwindow 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. RETURN VALUE
The return values of these macros are undefined (i.e., they should not be used as the right-hand side of assignment statements). NOTES
All of these interfaces are macros. A "&" is not necessary before the variables y and x. PORTABILITY
The getyx, getparyx, getbegyx and getmaxyx functions are described in the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4. This implementation also provides getbegx, getbegy, getcurx, getcury, getmaxx, getmaxy, getparx and getpary for compatibility with older versions of curses. SEE ALSO
