curs_termattrs(3)                               curs_termattrs(3)

       baudrate,  erasechar,  has_ic, has_il, killchar, longname,
       termattrs, termname - curses environment query routines

       #include <curses.h>

       int baudrate(void);
       char erasechar(void);
       int has_ic(void);
       int has_il(void);
       char killchar(void);
       char *longname(void);
       attr_t termattrs(void);
       char *termname(void);

       The baudrate routine returns the output speed of the  ter-
       minal.   The  number  returned  is in bits per second, for
       example 9600, and is an integer.

       The erasechar routine returns  the  user's  current  erase

       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 physical scrolling using

       The killchar routine returns the user's current line  kill

       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 charac-
       ters.  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  application  program is trying to use, curses may sub-
       stitute a different video attribute for it.  The termattrs
       function returns a logical OR of all video attributes sup-
       ported 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


curs_termattrs(3)                               curs_termattrs(3)

       environmental  variable TERM (truncated to 14 characters).

       longname and termname return NULL on error.

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

       Note that termattrs may be a macro.

       The XSI Curses standard, Issue  4  describes  these  func-
       tions.  It changes the return type of termattrs to the new
       type attr_t.
