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

NAME
       mvscanw,	 mvwscanw, scanw, wscanw - convert formatted input from	a win-
       dow

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 mvscanw(int y, int x, char *fmt, ...);

       int mvwscanw(WINDOW *win, int y,	int x, char *fmt, ...);

       int scanw(char *fmt, ...);

       int wscanw(WINDOW *win, char *fmt, ...);

PARAMETERS
       y		       Is the y	(row) coordinate of  the  position  of
			       the character to	be read.

       x		       Is the x	(column) coordinate of the position of
			       the character to	be read.

       fmt		       Is a scanf() format string.

       win		       Is a pointer to the window in which the charac-
			       ter is to be read.

DESCRIPTION
       These  functions	 are  similar  to scanf(3C). Their effect is as	though
       mvwgetstr(3XCURSES) were	called to get a	 multi-byte  character	string
       from the	current	or specified window at the current or specified	cursor
       position, and then sscanf() were	used to	 interpret  and	 convert  that
       string.

RETURN VALUES
       Upon  successful	completion, these functions return OK. Otherwise, they
       return ERR.

ERRORS
       No errors are defined.
