keybound(3x)                                               keybound(3x)




NAME

       keybound - return definition of keycode


SYNOPSIS

       #include <curses.h>

       char * keybound(int keycode, int count);


DESCRIPTION

       This is an extension to the curses library.  It permits an
       application to determine the string which  is  defined  in
       the terminfo for specific keycodes.


RETURN VALUE

       The keycode parameter must be greater than zero, else NULL
       is returned.  If it does not correspond to a defined  key,
       then  NULL  is  returned.   The count parameter is used to
       allow the application to iterate through multiple  defini-
       tions,  counting from zero.  When successful, the function
       returns a string which must be freed by the caller.


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  con-
       ditioned using NCURSES_VERSION.
