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 reenabled.

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).
