NAME

longname - return full terminal type name  

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>

const char *longname(void);  

DESCRIPTION

The longname() function returns a pointer to a static area containing a verbose description (128 characters or fewer) of the terminal. The area is defined after calls to initscr(3XCURSES), newterm(3XCURSES), or setupterm(3XCURSES). The value should be saved if longname() is going to be used with multiple terminals since it will be overwritten with a new value after each call to newterm() or setupterm().  

RETURN VALUES

On success, the longname() function returns a pointer to a verbose description of the terminal. Otherwise, it returns a null pointer.  

ERRORS

None.
