NAME

       curses_version, use_extended_names - miscellaneous curses extensions

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curses.h>

       const char * curses_version(void);
       int use_extended_names(bool enable);

DESCRIPTION

       These  functions  are  extensions to the curses library which do not fit easily into other
       categories.

       Use curses_version() to get the version number, including  patch  level  of  the  library,
       e.g., 5.0.19991023

       The  use_extended_names() function controls whether the calling application is able to use
       user-defined or nonstandard names which may be compiled  into  the  terminfo  description,
       i.e., via the terminfo or termcap interfaces.  Normally these names are available for use,
       since the essential decision is made by using the -x option of  tic  to  compile  extended
       terminal  definitions.   However you can disable this feature to ensure compatibility with
       other implementations of curses.

PORTABILITY

       These routines are specific to ncurses.  They were not supported  on  Version  7,  BSD  or
       System  V  implementations.   It  is  recommended  that  any  code  depending  on  them be
       conditioned using NCURSES_VERSION.
