NAME

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 tgetstr(), 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

None.  

USAGE

The output of putp() goes to stdout, not to the file descriptor, fildes, specified in setupterm(3XCURSES).
