curs_termattrs(3CURSES)	   Curses Library Functions    curs_termattrs(3CURSES)

NAME
       curs_termattrs,	baudrate,  erasechar,  has_ic, has_il, killchar, long-
       name, termattrs,	termname - curses environment query routines

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

       int baudrate(void);

       char erasechar(void);

       int has_ic(void);

       int has_il(void);

       char killchar(void);

       char *longname(void);

       chtype termattrs(void);

       char *termname(void);

DESCRIPTION
       The baudrate() routine returns the output speed of  the	terminal.  The
       number  returned	is in bits per second, for example 9600, and is	an in-
       teger.

       With the	erasechar() routine, the user's	current	erase character	is re-
       turned.

       The  has_ic()  routine  is true if the terminal has insert- and delete-
       character capabilities.

       The has_il() routine is true if the terminal has	 insert-  and  delete-
       line  capabilities,  or can simulate them using scrolling regions. This
       might be	used to	determine if it	would be appropriate to	turn on	physi-
       cal scrolling using scrollok().

       With  the killchar() routine, the user's	current	line kill character is
       returned.

       The longname() routine returns a	pointer	to a static area containing  a
       verbose	description  of	 the current terminal. The maximum length of a
       verbose description is 128 characters.  It is defined  only  after  the
       call to initscr() or newterm(). The area	is overwritten by each call to
       newterm() and is	not restored by	set_term(), so	the  value  should  be
       saved between calls to newterm()	if longname() is going to be used with
       multiple	terminals.

       If a given terminal doesn't support a video attribute that an  applica-
       tion  program is	trying to use, curses may substitute a different video
       attribute for it. The termattrs() function returns a logical OR of  all
       video  attributes supported by the terminal. This information is	useful
       when a curses program needs complete control over the appearance	of the
       screen.

       The  termname()	routine	 returns the value of the environment variable
       TERM (truncated to 14 characters).

RETURN VALUES
       longname() and termname() return	NULL on	error.

       Routines	that return an integer return ERR upon failure and an  integer
       value other than	ERR upon successful completion.
