def_shell_mode(3XCURSES)

Name

def_prog_mode, def_shell_mode, reset_prog_mode, reset_shell_mode - save/restore terminal modes

Synopsis

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 def_prog_mode(void);
int def_shell_mode(void);
int reset_prog_mode(void);
int reset_shell_mode(void);

Description

The def_prog_mode() and def_shell_mode() functions save the current terminal modes as "program" (within X/Open Curses) or "shell" (outside X/Open Curses). The modes are saved automatically by initscr(3XCURSES), newterm(3XCURSES), and setupterm(3XCURSES).

The reset_prog_mode() and reset_shell_mode() functions reset the current terminal modes to "program" (within X/Open Curses) or "shell" (outside X/Open Curses). The endwin(3XCURSES) function automatically calls the reset_shell_mode() function and the doupdate(3XCURSES) function calls the reset_prog_mode() function after calling endwin().

Return Values

On success, these functions return OK. Otherwise, they return ERR.

Errors

None.
