NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     curs_scanw:  scanw, wscanw, mvscanw, mvwscanw, vwscanw - convert
     formatted input from a curses widow

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <curses.h>

     int scanw(char *fmt [, arg] ...);

     int wscanw(WINDOW *win, char *fmt [, arg] ...);
     int mvscanw(int y,	int x, char *fmt [, arg] ...);

     int mvwscanw(WINDOW *win, int y, int x,
	  char *fmt [, arg] ...);
     int vwscanw(WINDOW	*win, char *fmt, va_list varglist);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The scanw,	wscanw and mvscanw routines correspond to scanf	[see
     scanf(3S)].  The effect of	these routines is as though wgetstr were
     called on the window, and the resulting line used as input	for the	scan.
     Fields which do not map to	a variable in the fmt field are	lost.

     The vwscanw routine is similar to vwprintw	in that	it performs a wscanw
     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    [Toc]    [Back]

     vwscanw returns ERR on failure and	an integer equal to the	number of
     fields scanned on success.

     Applications may interrogate the return value from	the scanw, wscanw,
     mvscanw and  mvwscanw routines to determine the number of fields which
     were mapped in the	call.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

     The header	file <curses.h>	automatically includes the header files
     <stdio.h> and <unctrl.h>.
