+.SH NAME
+\fBcurses_version\fP,
+\fBuse_extended_names\fP \- miscellaneous curses extensions
+.
+.SH SYNOPSIS
+\fB#include <curses.h>\fP
+.sp
+\fBconst char * curses_version(void);\fP
+.br
+\fBint use_extended_names(bool enable);\fP
+.SH DESCRIPTION
+These functions are extensions to the curses library
+which do not fit easily into other categories.
+.PP
+Use
+.I curses_version()
+to get the version number, including patch level of the library, e.g.,
+.B 5.0.19991023
+.PP
+The
+.I use_extended_names()
+function controls whether the calling application
+is able to use user-defined or nonstandard names
+which may be compiled into the terminfo
+description, i.e., via the terminfo or termcap interfaces.
+Normally these names are available for use, since the essential decision
+is made by using the \fB-x\fP option of \fB@TIC@\fP to compile
+extended terminal definitions.
+However you can disable this feature
+to ensure compatibility with other implementations of curses.
+.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 them be conditioned using NCURSES_VERSION.
