cc [ flag... ] file... -I /usr/xpg4/include -L /usr/xpg4/lib \ -R /usr/xpg4/lib -lcurses [ library... ] c89 [ flag... ] file... -lcurses [ library... ] #include <curses.h> int ripoffline(int line, int (*init)(WINDOW *win, int width));
determines whether the screen line being reserved comes from the top of stdscr (line is positive) or the bottom (line is negative).
Is a pointer to a function that initializes the one-line window.
Is a pointer to one-line window created by this function.
Is the number of columns in the window pointed to by the win parameter.
The ripoffline() function reserves a screen line as a one line window.
To use this function, it must be called before you call initscr(3XCURSES) or newterm(3XCURSES). When initscr() or newterm() is called, so is the function pointed to by init. The function pointed to by init takes two arguments: a pointer to the one-line window and the number of columns in that window. This function cannot use the LINES or COLS variables and cannot call wrefresh(3XCURSES) or doupdate(3XCURSES), but may call wnoutrefresh(3XCURSES).
The rioffline() function always returns OK.
