NAME

curs_printw, printw, wprintw, mvprintw, mvwprintw, vw_printw, vwprintw - Print formatted output in Curses windows  

SYNOPSIS

#include <curses.h>

int printw( char *fmt[, arg]... ); int wprintw( WINDOW *win, char *fmt[, arg]... ); int mvprintw( int y, int x, char *fmt[, arg]... ); int mvwprintw( WINDOW *win, int y, int x, char *fmt[, arg]... ); #include <stdarg.h> include <curses.h>

int vw_printw( WINDOW *win, char *fmt, va_list varglist ); #include <varargs.h> include <curses.h>

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

LIBRARY

Curses Library (libcurses)
 

STANDARDS

Interfaces documented on this reference page conform to industry standards as follows:

printw, wprintw, mvprintw, mvwprintw:  XPG4, XPG4-UNIX

vw_printw, vwprintw:  XPG4-UNIX

Refer to the standards(5) reference page for more information about industry standards and associated tags.
 

DESCRIPTION

The printw, wprintw, mvprintw, and mvwprintw routines are analogous to printf family of routines (see printf(3)). In effect, the printw routines output the string that would be output by printf as though waddstr were used on the given window.

The vw_printw routine is analogous to vprintf (see vprintf(3)) and performs the same operation as wprintw but uses a variable argument list. The va_list type is a pointer to a list of arguments and is defined in <stdarg.h>.

The vwprintw routine is equivalent to vw_printw except that va_list is defined in <varargs.h>. The vw_printw routine is recommended for use in new applications.
 

NOTES

The header file <curses.h> automatically includes the header file <stdio.h>.
 

RETURN VALUES

All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and OK upon successful completion.
