Synopsis

int clrtobot(void);
int wclrtobot(WINDOW *win);

Description

The clrtobot() function clears all characters in the stdscr window from the cursor to the end of the window. The wclrtobot() function performs the same action in the window specified by win instead of in stdscr. The current background character (and rendition) is used to clear the screen.

If the clearing action results in clearing only a portion of a multicolumn character, background characters are displayed in place of the remaining portion.

Parameters

win

Is a pointer to the window that is to be cleared.

Return Values

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

Errors

None.
