putp, tputs - apply padding information and output string 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 putp(const char *str); int tputs(const char *str, int affcnt, int (*putfunc) (int)); PARAMETERS
str Is a pointer to a terminfo variable or return value from tgetstr(3XCURSES), tgoto(3XCURSES), tigetstr(3XCURSES), or tparm(3XCURSES). affcnt Is the number of lines affected, or 1 if not relevant. putfunc Is the output function. DESCRIPTION
The putp() and tputs() functions are low-level functions used to deal directly with the terminfo database. The use of appropriate X/Open Curses functions is recommended for most situations. The tputs() function adds padding information and then outputs str. str must be a terminfo string variable or the result value from tget- str(), tgoto(), tigetstr(), or tparm(). The tputs() function replaces the padding specification (if one exists) with enough characters to produce the specified delay. Characters are output one at a time to putfunc, a user-specified function similar to putchar(3C). The putp() function calls tputs() as follows: tputs(str, 1, putchar) RETURN VALUES
On success, these functions return OK. ERRORS
The output of putp() goes to stdout, not to the file descriptor, fildes, specified in setupterm(3XCURSES). ATTRIBUTES
