curs_extend(3X)                                                curs_extend(3X)

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.

SEE ALSO

       default_colors(3X), define_key(3X), keybound(3X), keyok(3X),
       resizeterm(3X), wresize(3X).
