Curses Library (libcurses)
Interfaces documented on this reference page conform to
industry standards as follows:
clear, wclear, erase, werase, clrtobot, wclrtobot, clrtoeol,
Refer to the standards(5) reference page for more information
about industry standards and associated tags.
The erase and werase routines copy blanks to every position
in the window.
The clear and wclear routines are similar to erase and
werase but also call clearok. The result is that the
screen is cleared completely on the next call to wrefresh
for that window and repainted from scratch.
The clrtobot and wclrtobot routines erase all lines below
the cursor in the window. In addition, these routines
erase the current line to the right of the cursor, including
the character on which the cursor is positioned.
The clrtoeol and wclrtoeol routines erase the current line
to the right of the cursor, including the character on
which the cursor is positioned.
The header file <curses.h> automatically includes the
header file <stdio.h>.
Note that erase, werase, clear, wclear, clrtobot, and clrtoeol
may be macros.
Upon successful completion, these routines return OK; otherwise,
they return ERR.
