+.SH NAME
+\fBuse_legacy_coding\fR \- use terminal's default colors
+.SH SYNOPSIS
+\fB#include <curses.h>\fP
+.sp
+\fBint use_legacy_coding(int level);\fP
+.SH DESCRIPTION
+The
+.I use_legacy_coding()
+function is an extension to the curses library.
+It allows the caller to change the result of \fBunctrl\fP,
+and suppress related checks within the library that would normally
+cause nonprinting characters to be rendered in visible form.
+This affects only 8-bit characters.
+.PP
+The \fIlevel\fP parameter controls the result:
+.RS
+.TP 5
+0
+the library functions normally,
+rendering nonprinting characters as described in \fBunctrl\fP(3X).
+.TP
+1
+the library ignores \fBisprintf\fP for codes in the range 160-255.
+.TP
+2
+the library ignores \fBisprintf\fP for codes in the range 128-255.
+It also modifies the output of \fBunctrl\fP, showing codes in the
+range 128-159 as is.
+.RE
+.SH RETURN VALUE
+If the screen has not been initialized,
+or the \fIlevel\fP parameter is out of range,
+the function returns \fBERR\fP.
+Otherwise, it returns the previous level: \fB0\fP, \fB1\fP or \fB2\fP.
+.SH PORTABILITY
+This routine is specific to ncurses.
+It was not supported on Version 7, BSD or System V implementations.
+It is recommended that any code depending on ncurses extensions
+be conditioned using NCURSES_VERSION.
+.SH SEE ALSO
+\fBunctrl\fR.
