NAME

curses_version,
use_extended_names – miscellaneous curses extensions
 

SYNOPSIS

#include <curses.h>


const char * curses_version(void);

int use_extended_names(bool enable);
 

DESCRIPTION

These functions are extensions to the curses library
which do not fit easily into other categories.

Use
curses_version()

to get the version number, including patch level of the library, e.g.,
5.0.19991023

The
use_extended_names()

function controls whether the calling application
is able to use user-defined or nonstandard names
which may be compiled into the terminfo
description, i.e., via the terminfo or termcap interfaces.
Normally these names are available for use, since the essential decision
is made by using the -x option of tic to compile
extended terminal definitions.
However you can disable this feature
to ensure compatibility with other implementations of curses.
 

PORTABILITY

These routines are specific to ncurses. They were not supported on
Version 7, BSD or System V implementations. It is recommended that
any code depending on them be conditioned using NCURSES_VERSION.
