+.SH DESCRIPTION
+This implementation can be configured to provide a set of functions which
+improve the ability to manage multiple screens.
+This feature can be added to any of the configurations supported by ncurses;
+it adds new entrypoints
+without changing the meaning of any of the existing ones.
+.PP
+.\" ***************************************************************************
+.SS IMPROVED FUNCTIONS
+Most of the functions are new versions of existing functions.
+A parameter is added at the front of the parameter list.
+It is a SCREEN pointer.
+.PP
+The existing functions all use the current screen,
+which is a static variable.
+The extended functions use the specified screen,
+thereby reducing the number of variables which must be modified
+to update multiple screens.
+.\" ***************************************************************************
+.SS NEW FUNCTIONS
+Here are the new functions:
+.TP 5
+ceiling_panel
+this returns a pointer to the topmost panel in the given screen.
+.TP 5
+ground_panel
+this returns a pointer to the lowest panel in the given screen.
+.TP 5
+new_prescr
+when creating a new screen, the library uses static variables which
+have been preset, e.g., by \fBuse_env\fP(3X), \fBfilter\fP(3X), etc.
+With the screen-pointer extension,
+there are situations where it must create a current screen before
+the unextended library does.
+The \fBnew_prescr\fP function is used internally to handle these cases.
+It is also provided as an entrypoint to allow applications to customize
+the library initialization.
+.\" ***************************************************************************
+.SH NOTES
+This extension introduces some new names:
+.TP 5
+NCURSES_SP_FUNCS
+This is set to the library patch-level number.
+In the unextended library, this is zero (0),
+to make it useful for checking if the extension is provided.
+.TP 5
+NCURSES_SP_NAME
+The new functions are named using the macro \fINCURSES_SP_NAME\fP,
+which hides the actual implementation.
+Currently this adds a "_sp" suffix to the name of the unextended function.
+This manual page indexes the extensions showing the full name.
+However the proper usage of these functions uses the macro,
+to provide for the possibility of changing the naming convention
+for specific library configurations.
+.TP 5
+NCURSES_SP_OUTC
+This is a new function-pointer type to use in the screen-pointer functions
+where an \fINCURSES_OUTC\fP is used in the unextended library.
+.TP 5
+NCURSES_OUTC
+This is a function-pointer type used for the cases where a function passes
+characters to the output stream, e.g., \fBvidputs\fP(3X).
+.PP
+.SH 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 ncurses extensions
+be conditioned using \fINCURSES_SP_FUNCS\fP.

+.SH DESCRIPTION
+This page summarizes variables provided by the \fBcurses\fP library.
+A more complete description is given in the \fBcurses\fP(3X) manual page.
+.PP
+Depending on the configuration, these may be actual variables,
+or macros (see \fBcurs_threads\fR(3X))
+which provide read-only access to \fIcurses\fP's state.
+In either case, applications should treat them as read-only to avoid
+confusing the library.
+.SS COLOR_PAIRS
+After initializing curses, this variable contains the number of color pairs
+which the terminal can support.
+Usually the number of color pairs will be the product \fBCOLORS\fP*\fBCOLORS\fP,
+however this is not always true:
+.bP
+a few terminals use HLS colors, which do not follow this rule
+.bP
+terminals supporting a large number of colors are limited by the number
+of color pairs that can be represented in a \fIsigned short\fP value.
+.SS COLORS
+After initializing curses, this variable contains the number of colors
+which the terminal can support.
+.SS COLS
+After initializing curses, this variable contains the width of the screen,
+i.e., the number of columns.
+.SS ESCDELAY
+This variable holds the number of milliseconds to wait after reading an
+escape character,
+to distinguish between an individual escape character entered on the
+keyboard from escape sequences sent by cursor- and function-keys
+(see curses(3X).
+.SS LINES
+After initializing curses, this variable contains the height of the screen,
+i.e., the number of lines.
+.SS TABSIZE
+This variable holds the number of columns used by the \fIcurses\fP library
+when converting a tab character to spaces as it adds the tab to a window
+(see curs_addch(3X).
+.SS The Current Screen
+This implementation of curses uses a special window \fBcurscr\fP to
+record its updates to the terminal screen.
+.SS The New Screen
+This implementation of curses uses a special window \fBnewscr\fP to
+hold updates to the terminal screen before applying them to \fBcurscr\fP.
+.SS The Standard Screen
+Upon initializing curses,
+a default window called \fBstdscr\fP,
+which is the size of the terminal screen, is created.
+Many curses functions use this window.
+.SH NOTES
+The curses library is initialized using either \fBinitscr\fR(3X),
+or \fBnewterm\fR(3X).
+.PP
+If \fBcurses\fP is configured to use separate curses/terminfo libraries,
+most of these variables reside in the curses library.
+.SH PORTABILITY
+ESCDELAY and TABSIZE are extensions,
+not provided in most other implementations of curses.

+.SH NAME
+\fBtabs\fR \- set tabs on a terminal
+.SH SYNOPSIS
+\fBtabs\fR [\fB\-v\fR[\fIn\fR]] [\fB\-ahuUV\fR] \fIfile...\fR
+.br
+.SH DESCRIPTION
+.PP
+The \fBtabs\fP program clears and sets tab-stops on the terminal.
+This uses the terminfo \fIclear_all_tabs\fP and \fIset_tab\fP capabilities.
+If either is absent, \fBtabs\fP is unable to clear/set tab-stops.
+The terminal should be configured to use hard tabs, e.g.,
+.sp
+.RS
+stty tab0
+.RE
+.SH OPTIONS
+.SS General Options
+.TP 5
+.BI \-T "name"
+Tell \fBtabs\fP which terminal type to use.
+If this option is not given, \fBtabs\fP will use the \fB$TERM\fP
+environment variable.
+If that is not set, it will use the \fIansi+tabs\fP entry.
+.TP 5
+.B \-d
+The debugging option shows a ruler line, followed by two data lines.
+The first data line shows the expected tab-stops marked with asterisks.
+The second data line shows the actual tab-stops, marked with asterisks.
+.TP 5
+.B \-n
+This option tells \fBtabs\fP to check the options and run any debugging
+option, but not to modify the terminal settings.
+.PP
+The \fBtabs\fP program processes a single list of tab stops.
+The last option to be processed which defines a list is the one that
+determines the list to be processed.
+.SS Implicit Lists
+Use a single number as an option, e.g., "\fB\-5\fP" to set tabs at the given
+interval (in this case 1, 6, 11, 16, 21, etc.). Tabs are repeated up to
+the right margin of the screen.
+.PP
+Use "\fB\-0\fP" to clear all tabs.
+.PP
+Use "\fB\-8\fP" to set tabs to the standard interval.
+.SS Explicit Lists
+An explicit list can be defined after the options (this does not use a "\-").
+The values in the list must be in increasing numeric order, and greater than
+zero. They are separated by a comma or a blank, for example,
+.sp
+.RS
+tabs 1,6,11,16,21
+.br
+tabs 1 6 11 16 21
+.RE
+Use a '+' to treat a number as an increment relative to the previous value,
+e.g.,
+.sp
+.RS
+tabs 1,+5,+5,+5,+5
+.RE
+which is equivalent to the 1,6,11,16,21 example.
+.SS Predefined Tab-Stops
+X/Open defines several predefined lists of tab stops.

+.SH PORTABILITY
+.PP
+X/Open describes a \fB+m\fP option, to set a terminal's left-margin.
+Very few of the entries in the terminal database provide this capability.
+.PP
+The \fB\-d\fP (debug) and \fB\-n\fP (no-op) options are extensions not provided
+by other implementations.
+.PP
+Documentation for other implementations states that there is a limit on the
+number of tab stops. While some terminals may not accept an arbitrary number
+of tab stops, this implementation will attempt to set tab stops up to the
+right margin of the screen, if the given list happens to be that long.

+.SH DESCRIPTION
+This page summarizes variables provided by the \fBcurses\fP library's
+low-level terminfo interface.
+A more complete description is given in the \fBcurs_terminfo\fP(3X) manual page.
+.PP
+Depending on the configuration, these may be actual variables,
+or macros (see \fBcurs_threads\fR(3X))
+which provide read-only access to \fIcurses\fP's state.
+In either case, applications should treat them as read-only to avoid
+confusing the library.
+.SS Alternate Character Set Mapping
+After initializing the curses or terminfo interfaces,
+the \fBacs_map\fP array holds information used to translate cells
+with the \fBA_ALTCHARSET\fP video attribute into line-drawing characters.
+.PP
+The encoding of the information in this array has changed periodically.
+Application developers need only know that it is used for the "ACS_"
+constants in <curses.h>.
+.PP
+The comparable data for the wide-character library is a private variable.
+.SS Current Terminal Data
+After initializing the curses or terminfo interfaces,
+the \fBcur_term\fP contains data describing the current terminal.
+This variable is also set as a side-effect of \fBset_term\fP(3X)
+and \fBdelscreen\fP(3X).
+.PP
+It is possible to save a value of \fBcur_term\fP for subsequent
+use as a parameter to \fBset_term\fP, for switching between screens.
+Alternatively, one can save the return value from \fBnewterm\fP
+or \fBsetupterm\fP to reuse in \fBset_term\fP.
+.SS Terminfo Names
+The \fBtic\fP(1) and \fBinfocmp\fP(1) programs use lookup tables for
+the long and short names of terminfo capabilities,
+as well as the corresponding names for termcap capabilities.
+These are available to other applications,
+though the hash-tables are not available.
+.PP
+The long terminfo capability names use a "l" (ell) in their names:
+boolfnames
+numfnames
+strfnames
+.PP
+These are the short names for terminfo capabilities:
+boolnames,
+numnames, and
+strnames.
+.PP
+These are the corresponding names used for termcap descriptions:
+boolcodes,
+numcodes, and
+strcodes.
+.SS Terminal Type
+On initialization of the curses or terminfo interfaces,
+\fBsetupterm\fP copies the terminal name to the array \fBttytype\fP.
+.SH NOTES
+The low-level terminfo interface is initialized using \fBsetupterm\fR(3X).
+The upper-level curses interface uses the low-level terminfo interface,
+internally.
+.SH PORTABILITY
+X/Open Curses does not describe any of these except for \fBcur_term\fP.
+(The inclusion of \fBcur_term\fP appears to be an oversight,
+since other comparable low-level information is omitted by X/Open).
+.PP
+Other implementations may have comparable variables.
+Some implementations provide the variables in their libraries,
+but omit them from the header files.
