curs_getyx(3)                                       curs_getyx(3)

       getyx,  getparyx,  getbegyx,  getmaxyx - get curses cursor
       and window coordinates

       #include <curses.h>

       void getyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);
       void getparyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);
       void getbegyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);
       void getmaxyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);

       The getyx macro places the current cursor position of  the
       given window in the two integer variables y and x.

       If  win  is  a  subwindow,  the  getparyx macro places the
       beginning coordinates of the  subwindow  relative  to  the
       parent  window into two integer variables y and x.  Other-
       wise, -1 is placed into y and x.

       Like getyx, the getbegyx and  getmaxyx  macros  store  the
       current  beginning  coordinates  and size of the specified

       The return values of these  macros  are  undefined  (i.e.,
       they  should not be used as the right-hand side of assign-
       ment statements).

       All of these interfaces are macros and  that  "&"  is  not
       necessary before the variables y and x.

       These  functions are described in the XSI Curses standard,
       Issue 4.
