key_defined(3X)						       key_defined(3X)

NAME
       key_defined - check if a	keycode	is defined

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curses.h>

       int key_defined(const char *definition);

DESCRIPTION
       This  is	an extension to	the curses library.  It	permits	an application
       to determine if a string	is currently bound to any keycode.

RETURN VALUE
       If the string is	bound to a keycode, its	value (greater than  zero)  is
       returned.   If  no  keycode  is bound, zero is returned.	 If the	string
       conflicts with longer strings which are bound to	keys, -1 is  returned.

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.

SEE ALSO
       define_key(3X).
