-<H2>DESCRIPTION</H2><PRE>
- The <STRONG>get_wch</STRONG>, <STRONG>wget_wch</STRONG>, <STRONG>mvget_wch</STRONG>, and <STRONG>mvwget_wch</STRONG> functions
- read a character from the terminal associated with the
- current or specified window. In no-delay mode, if no
- input is waiting, the value <STRONG>ERR</STRONG> is returned. In delay
- mode, the program waits until the system passes text
- through to the program. Depending on the setting of
- <STRONG>cbreak</STRONG>, this is after one character (cbreak mode), or
- after the first newline (nocbreak mode). In half-delay
- mode, the program waits until the user types a character
- or the specified timeout interval has elapsed.
-
- Unless <STRONG>noecho</STRONG> has been set, these routines echo the char-
- acter into the designated window.
-
- If the window is not a pad and has been moved or modified
- since the last call to <STRONG>wrefresh</STRONG>, <STRONG>wrefresh</STRONG> will be called
- before another character is read.
-
- If <STRONG>keypad</STRONG> is enabled, these functions respond to the
- pressing of a function key by setting the object pointed
- to by <EM>wch</EM> to the corresponding <STRONG>KEY_</STRONG> value defined in
- <STRONG>&lt;curses.h&gt;</STRONG> and returning <STRONG>KEY_CODE_YES</STRONG>. If a character
- (such as escape) that could be the beginning of a function
- key is received, curses sets a timer. If the remainder of
- the sequence does arrive within the designated time,
- curses passes through the character; otherwise, curses
- returns the function key value. For this reason, many
- terminals experience a delay between the time a user
- presses the escape key and the time the escape is returned
- to the program.
-
- The <STRONG>unget_wch</STRONG> function pushes the wide character <EM>wch</EM> back
- onto the head of the input queue, so the wide character is
- returned by the next call to <STRONG>get_wch</STRONG>. The pushback of one
- character is guaranteed. If the program calls <STRONG>unget_wch</STRONG>
- too many times without an intervening call to <STRONG>get_wch</STRONG>, the
- operation may fail.

- The header file <STRONG>&lt;curses.h&gt;</STRONG> automatically includes the
- header file <STRONG>&lt;stdio.h&gt;</STRONG>.
+ If the window is not a pad and has been moved or modified since the
+ last call to <STRONG>wrefresh</STRONG>, <STRONG>wrefresh</STRONG> will be called before another character
+ is read.
+
+ If <STRONG>keypad</STRONG> is enabled, these functions respond to the pressing of a
+ function key by setting the object pointed to by <EM>wch</EM> to the keycode as-
+ signed to the function key, and returning <STRONG>KEY_CODE_YES</STRONG>. If a character
+ (such as escape) that could be the beginning of a function key is re-
+ ceived, curses sets a timer. If the remainder of the sequence does ar-
+ rive within the designated time, curses passes through the character;
+ otherwise, curses returns the function key value. For this reason,
+ many terminals experience a delay between the time a user presses the
+ escape key and the time the escape is returned to the program.
+
+ The keycodes returned by these functions are the same as those returned
+ by <STRONG>wgetch</STRONG>:
- Applications should not define the escape key by itself as
- a single-character function.
+ <STRONG>o</STRONG> The predefined function keys are listed in <STRONG>&lt;curses.h&gt;</STRONG> as macros
+ with values outside the range of 8-bit characters. Their names be-
+ gin with <STRONG>KEY_</STRONG>.
- When using <STRONG>get_wch</STRONG>, <STRONG>wget_wch</STRONG>, <STRONG>mvget_wch</STRONG>, or <STRONG>mvwget_wch</STRONG>,
- applications should not use <STRONG>nocbreak</STRONG> mode and <STRONG>echo</STRONG> mode at
- the same time. Depending on the state of the tty driver
- when each character is typed, the program may produce
- undesirable results.
+ <STRONG>o</STRONG> Other (user-defined) function keys which may be defined using <STRONG>de-</STRONG>
+ <STRONG><A HREF="define_key.3x.html">fine_key(3x)</A></STRONG> have no names, but also are expected to have values
+ outside the range of 8-bit characters.

+ gram calls <STRONG>unget_wch</STRONG> too many times without an intervening call to
