NAME

ripoffline - reserve screen line for dedicated purpose  

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 ripoffline(int line, int (*init)(WINDOW *win, int width));  

PARAMETERS

line determines whether the screen line being reserved comes from the top of stdscr (line is positive) or the bottom (line is negative).

init Is a pointer to a function that initializes the one-line window.

win Is a pointer to one-line window created by this function.

width Is the number of columns in the window pointed to by the win parameter.

 

DESCRIPTION

The ripoffline() function reserves a screen line as a one line window.

To use this function, it must be called before you call initscr(3XCURSES) or newterm(3XCURSES). When initscr() or newterm() is called, so is the function pointed to by init. The function pointed to by init takes two arguments: a pointer to the one-line window and the number of columns in that window. This function cannot use the LINES or COLS variables and cannot call wrefresh(3XCURSES) or doupdate(3XCURSES), but may call wnoutrefresh(3XCURSES).  

RETURN VALUES

The rioffline() function always returns OK.  

ERRORS

None.
