curs_printw(3CURSES)	   Curses Library Functions	  curs_printw(3CURSES)

NAME
       curs_printw,  printw,  wprintw,	mvprintw,  mvwprintw, vwprintw - print
       formatted output	in curses windows

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

       int printw(char *fmt, /*	arg */ ... );

       int wprintw(WINDOW *win,	char *fmt, /* arg */ ... );

       int mvprintw(int	y, int x, char *fmt, /*	arg */ ... );

       int mvwprintw(WINDOW *win, int y, int x,	char *fmt, /* arg */...	);

       #include	<varargs.h>

       int vwprintw(WINDOW *win, char *fmt, /* varglist	*/ ... );

DESCRIPTION
       The printw(), wprintw(),	mvprintw(), and	mvwprintw() routines are anal-
       ogous  to  printf() (see	printf(3C) ). In effect, the string that would
       be output by printf() is	output instead as though waddstr()  were  used
       on the given window.

       The  vwprintw() routine is analogous to vprintf() (see vprintf(3C)) and
       performs	a wprintw() using a variable argument list. The	third argument
       is  a  va_list,	a  pointer  to	a  list	 of  arguments,	 as defined in
       <varargs.h>.

RETURN VALUES
       All routines return the integer ERR upon	failure	and an	integer	 value
       other than ERR upon successful completion.
