curs_getyx(3X)							curs_getyx(3X)

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

       #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 coordi‐
       nates of the subwindow relative to the parent window into  two  integer
       variables y and x.  Otherwise, -1 is placed into y and x.

       Like  getyx,  the getbegyx and getmaxyx macros store the current begin‐
       ning coordinates and size of the specified window.

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

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

       The getyx, getparyx, getbegyx and getmaxyx macros are described in  the
       XSI Curses standard, Issue 4.

       This  implementation  also provides getbegx, getbegy, getcurx, getcury,
       getmaxx, getmaxy, getparx and getpary for compatibility with older ver‐
       sions of curses.	 X/Open does not define a corresponding getcuryx func‐
       tion, though that would be needed to  make  references  to  the	WINDOW
       structure opaque.
