curs_printw(3X)						       curs_printw(3X)

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

SYNOPSIS
       #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);

DESCRIPTION
       The printw, wprintw, mvprintw and mvwprintw routines are	 analogous  to
       printf [see printf(3S)].	 In effect, the string that would be output by
       printf is output instead as though waddstr were used on the given  win‐
       dow.

       The  vwprintw routine is analogous to vprintf [see printf(3S)] and per‐
       forms a wprintw using a variable argument list.	The third argument  is
       a va_list, a pointer to a list of arguments, as defined in <varargs.h>.

RETURN VALUE
       Routines	 that  return  an integer return ERR upon failure and OK (SVr4
       only specifies "an integer value other than ERR") upon successful  com‐
       pletion.

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       tion vwprintw is marked TO BE WITHDRAWN, and is to  be  replaced	 by  a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