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