NAME
printw, wprintw, mvprintw, mvwprintw, vwprintw, vw_printw - print formatted output in curses windows SYNOPSIS
#include <curses.h> int printw(char *fmt [, arg] ...); int wprintw(WINDOW *win, char *fmt [, arg] ...); int mvprintw(int y, int x, char *fmt [, arg] ...); int mvwprintw(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, char *fmt [, arg] ...); #include <varargs.h> int vwprintw(WINDOW *win, char *fmt, varglist); int vw_printw(WINDOW *win, char *fmt, 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 routine is analogous to vprintf [see printf(3S)] and performs a wprintw using a variable argument list. The third argument is a va_list, a pointer to a list of arguments, as defined in <varargs.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 com- pletion. 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 The function vwprintw is marked TO BE WITHDRAWN, and is to be replaced by a function vw_printw using the 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. SEE ALSO
