</PRE><H2><a name="h2-DESCRIPTION">DESCRIPTION</a></H2><PRE>
       These  legacy functions are simpler to use than the X/Open Curses func-
       tions:

       <STRONG>o</STRONG>   The <STRONG>getattrs</STRONG> function returns the same attribute data as <STRONG>wattr_get</STRONG>.

           However, <STRONG>getattrs</STRONG> returns an integer  (actually  a  <STRONG>chtype</STRONG>),  while
           <STRONG>wattr_get</STRONG>  returns  the current color pair in a separate parameter.
           In the wide-character library configuration, color  pairs  may  not
           fit into a <STRONG>chtype</STRONG>, so <STRONG>wattr_get</STRONG> is the only way to obtain the color
           information.

           Because <STRONG>getattrs</STRONG> returns the attributes in a single  parameter,  it
           would  not  be possible for an application to distinguish that from
           <STRONG>ERR</STRONG> (a <EM>-1</EM>).  If the window  parameter  is  null,  <STRONG>getattrs</STRONG>  returns
           <STRONG>A_NORMAL</STRONG> (zero).

       <STRONG>o</STRONG>   The <STRONG>getbegy</STRONG> and <STRONG>getbegx</STRONG> functions return the same data as <STRONG>getbegyx</STRONG>.

       <STRONG>o</STRONG>   The <STRONG>getcury</STRONG> and <STRONG>getcurx</STRONG> functions return the same data as <STRONG>getyx</STRONG>.

       <STRONG>o</STRONG>   The <STRONG>getmaxy</STRONG> and <STRONG>getmaxx</STRONG> functions return the same data as <STRONG>getmaxyx</STRONG>.

       <STRONG>o</STRONG>   The <STRONG>getpary</STRONG> and <STRONG>getparx</STRONG> functions return the same data as <STRONG>getparyx</STRONG>.


</PRE><H2><a name="h2-RETURN-VALUE">RETURN VALUE</a></H2><PRE>
       Except  as noted, these functions return an integer, or <STRONG>ERR</STRONG> if the win-
       dow parameter is null.


</PRE><H2><a name="h2-NOTES">NOTES</a></H2><PRE>
       All of these interfaces are provided  as  macros  and  functions.   The
       macros   are   suppressed   (and  only  the  functions  provided)  when
       <STRONG>NCURSES_OPAQUE</STRONG> is defined.  The standard forms such as  <STRONG>getyx</STRONG>  must  be
       implemented  as  macros,  and  (in  this implementation) are defined in
       terms of the functions described here, to avoid  reliance  on  internal
       details of the WINDOW structure.


</PRE><H2><a name="h2-PORTABILITY">PORTABILITY</a></H2><PRE>
       These  functions were supported on Version 7, BSD or System V implemen-
       tations.  None of those implementations checked the window parameter.

       The <STRONG>getattrs</STRONG> function and macro are defined to return a (signed)  inte-
       ger  for  compatibility with those implementations although an unsigned
       type would have been more appropriate.
