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

NAME
       redrawwin, wredrawln - redraw screen or portion of screen

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 redrawwin(WINDOW *win);

       int wredrawln(WINDOW *win, int beg_line,	int num_lines);

PARAMETERS
       win		       Is a pointer to the window in which to redraw.

       beg_line		       Is the first line to redraw.

       num_lines	       Is the number of	lines to redraw.

DESCRIPTION
       The redrawwin() and wredrawln() functions force portions	of a window to
       be redrawn to the terminal when the  next  refresh  operation  is  per-
       formed.

       The  redrawwin()	 function  forces the entire window win	to be redrawn,
       while the wredrawln() function forces  only  num_lines  lines  starting
       with beg_line to	be redrawn. Normally, refresh operations use optimiza-
       tion methods to reduce the actual amount	of the screen to redraw	 based
       on  the current screen contents.	  These	functions tell the refresh op-
       erations	not to attempt any optimization	 when redrawing	the  indicated
       areas.

       These  functions	 are useful when the data that exists on the screen is
       believed	 to be corrupt and for applications  such  as  screen  editors
       that redraw portions of the screen.

RETURN VALUES
       On success, these functions return OK. Otherwise, they return ERR.

ERRORS
       None.
