       intrflush - enable flush on interrupt

       #include <cursesX.h>

       int intrflush(win, bf)
       WINDOW *win;
       bool bf;

       If  is  enabled, pressing an interrupt key (interrupt, break, quit) flushes all output in the tty driver queue.	This gives the effect of a
       faster response to the interrupt but causes the program to have an inaccurate picture of what is on the screen.	Disabling the option  pre-
       vents the flush.

       The default for the option is dependent on the tty driver settings.  You have to force the terminal into the state you require.	The window
       argument is ignored.

Return Values
       The function returns OK on success and ERR on error.
