NAME
       echo, noecho - enable/disable terminal echo

SYNOPSIS
       cc [ flag... ] file... -I /usr/xpg4/include -L /usr/xpg4/lib \
       -R /usr/xpg4/lib	-lcurses [ library... ]

       #include	<curses.h>

       int echo(void);

       int noecho(void);

DESCRIPTION
       The  echo() function enables Echo mode for the current screen. The noe-
       cho() function disables Echo mode for the  current  screen.  Initially,
       curses  software	echo mode is enabled and hardware echo mode of the tty
       driver is disabled. The echo() and noecho() functions control  software
       echo  only.  Hardware echo must remain disabled for the duration	of the
       application, else the behavior is undefined.

RETURN VALUES
       Upon successful completion, these functions return OK. Otherwise,  they
       return ERR.

ERRORS
       No errors are defined.
