curs_printw(3)                                     curs_printw(3)

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

       #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);

       The printw, wprintw, mvprintw and mvwprintw  routines  are
       analogous  to  printf  [see  printf(3)].   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
       printf(3)] and performs a wprintw using a  variable  argu-
       ment  list.  The third argument is a va_list, a pointer to
       a list of arguments, as defined in <varargs.h>.

       Routines that return an integer return  ERR  upon  failure
       and  OK  (SVr4 only specifies "an integer value other than
       ERR") upon successful completion.

       The XSI Curses standard, Issue  4  describes  these  func-
       tions.   The  function vwprintw is marked TO BE WITHDRAWN,
       and is to be replaced by a function  vw_printw  using  the
       <stdarg.h> interface.

       curses(3), printf(3), vprintf(3)
