keybound(3X)							  keybound(3X)

NAME
       keybound	- return definition of keycode

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curses.h>

       char * keybound(int keycode, int	count);

DESCRIPTION
       This  is	an extension to	the curses library.  It	permits	an application
       to determine the	string which is	defined	in the terminfo	 for  specific
       keycodes.

RETURN VALUE
       The keycode parameter must be greater than zero,	else NULL is returned.
       If it does not correspond to a defined key, then	NULL is	returned.  The
       count  parameter	 is  used  to allow the	application to iterate through
       multiple	definitions, counting from zero.  When successful,  the	 func-
       tion returns a string which must	be freed by the	caller.

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), keyok(3X).
