keyok(3X)							     keyok(3X)

NAME
       keyok - enable or disable a keycode

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curses.h>

       int keyok(int keycode, bool enable);

DESCRIPTION
       This  is	an extension to	the curses library.  It	permits	an application
       to disable specific keycodes, rather than use the  keypad  function  to
       disable	all keycodes.  Keys that have been disabled can	be re-enabled.

RETURN VALUE
       The keycode must	be greater than	zero, else ERR	is  returned.	If  it
       does  not  correspond  to  a defined key, then ERR is returned.	If the
       enable parameter	is true, then the key must  have  been	disabled,  and
       vice versa.  Otherwise, the function returns OK.

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).
