halfdelay(3XCURSES)	X/Open Curses Library Functions	   halfdelay(3XCURSES)

NAME
       halfdelay - enable/disable half-delay mode

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

       c89 [ flag... ] file... -lcurses	[ library... ]

       #include	<curses.h>

       int halfdelay(int tenths);

DESCRIPTION
       The  halfdelay()	 function  is similar to cbreak(3XCURSES) in that when
       set, characters typed by	the user are immediately processed by the pro-
       gram.   The  difference is that ERR is returned if no input is received
       after tenths tenths seconds.

       The nocbreak(3XCURSES) function should  be  used	 to  leave  half-delay
       mode.

PARAMETERS
       tenths	       Is  the	number of tenths of seconds for	which to block
		       input (1	to 255).

RETURN VALUES
       On success, the halfdelay() function returns OK.	Otherwise, it  returns
       ERR.

ERRORS
       None.
