curs_getyx(3CURSES)	   Curses Library Functions	   curs_getyx(3CURSES)

NAME
       curs_getyx, getyx, getparyx, getbegyx, getmaxyx - get curses cursor and
       window coordinates

SYNOPSIS
       cc [ flag ... ] file ...	-lcurses [ library ... ]
       #include	<curses.h>

       void getyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);

       void getparyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);

       void getbegyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);

       void getmaxyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);

DESCRIPTION
       With the	getyx()	macro, the cursor position of the window is placed  in
       the two integer variables y and x.

       With the	getparyx() macro, if win is a subwindow, the beginning coordi-
       nates of	the subwindow relative to the parent window  are  placed  into
       two integer variables, y	and x. Otherwise, -1 is	placed into y and x.

       Like  getyx()  ,	the getbegyx() and getmaxyx() macros store the current
       beginning coordinates and size of the specified window.

RETURN VALUES
       The return values of these macros are undefined (that is,  they	should
       not be used as the right-hand side of assignment	statements).

ATTRIBUTES
       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

NOTES
       The header <curses.h> automatically includes the	headers	 <stdio.h> and
       <unctrl.h>.

       Note that all of	these interfaces are macros and	that ``&'' is not nec-
       essary before the variables y and x.
