curses_fileio, getwin, putwin -- curses file input/output routines
Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses)
putwin(WINDOW *win, FILE *fp);
These functions read and write data to and from files.
The getwin() function reads window data that has been stored in the file
to which fp points, and then creates a new window using that data.
The putwin() function writes window data from the window win to the file
pointed to by fp.
The getwin() function returns one of the following values:
OK The function completed successfully.
ERR An error occurred in the function.
The putwin() function returns NULL if an error is detected.
curses_window(3), fread(3), fwrite(3)
Subwindows can not be created by the getwin() function, nor written by
the putwin() function.
The NetBSD Curses library complies with the X/Open Curses specification,
part of the Single Unix Specification.
These functions first appeared in NetBSD 5.0.
