int intrflush(WINDOW *win, bool bf);

Parameters

win

Is ignored.

bf

Is a Boolean expression.

Description

The intrflush() function specifies whether pressing an interrupt key (interrupt, suspend, or quit) will flush the input buffer associated with the current screen. If the value of bf is TRUE, then flushing of the output buffer associated with the current screen will occur when an interrupt key (interrupt, suspend, or quit) is pressed. If the value of bf is FALSE, then no flushing of the buffer will occur when an interrupt key is pressed. The default for the option is inherited from the display driver settings. The win argument is ignored.

Return Values

Upon successful completion, intrflush() returns OK. Otherwise, it returns ERR.

Errors

No errors are defined.
