NAME

vw_printw - print formatted output in window  

SYNOPSIS

cc [ flag... ] file... -I /usr/xpg4/include -L /usr/xpg4/lib \
-R /usr/xpg4/lib -lcurses [ library... ]

c89 [ flag... ] file... -lcurses [ library... ]

#include <stdarg.h>
#include <curses.h>

int vw_printw(WINDOW *win, char *fmt, va_list varglist);  

PARAMETERS

fmt Is a printf() format string.

varglist Is a pointer to a list of parameters.

win Is a pointer to the window in which the string is to be written.

 

DESCRIPTION

The vw_printw() function achieves the same effect as wprintw(3XCURSES) using a variable argument list. The third argument is a va_list, as defined in <stdarg.h>.  

RETURN VALUES

Upon successful completion, vw_printw() returns OK. Otherwise, it returns ERR.  

ERRORS

No errors are defined.  

USAGE

The vw_printw() function is preferred over vwprintw(3XCURSES). The use of the vwprintw() and vw_printw() in the same file will not work, due to the requirements to include <varargs.h> and <stdarg.h>, which both contain definitions of va_list.
