</PRE><H2><a name="h2-DESCRIPTION">DESCRIPTION</a></H2><PRE>
       This  implementation  can  be configured to provide rudimentary support
       for multi-threaded applications.  This makes a  different  set  of  li-
       braries, e.g., <EM>libncursest</EM> since the binary interfaces are different.

       Rather  than  modify  the interfaces to pass a thread specifier to each
       function, it adds a few functions which can be used in  any  configura-
       tion  which  hide  the  mutex's needed to prevent concurrent use of the
       global variables when configured for threading.

       In addition to forcing access to members of the <STRONG>WINDOW</STRONG> structure to  be
       via  functions  (see <STRONG><A HREF="curs_opaque.3x.html">curs_opaque(3x)</A></STRONG>), it makes functions of the common
       global variables, e.g., COLORS,  COLOR_PAIRS,  COLS,  ESCDELAY,  LINES,
       TABSIZE  curscr, newscr and ttytype.  Those variables are maintained as
       read-only values, stored in the <STRONG>SCREEN</STRONG> structure.

       Even this is not enough to make a thread-safe application using curses.
       A multi-threaded application would be expected to have threads updating
       separate windows (within the same  device),  or  updating  on  separate
       screens  (on  different  devices).  Also, a few of the global variables
       are considered writable by some applications.  The functions  described
       here address these special situations.

       The ESCDELAY and TABSIZE global variables are modified by some applica-
       tions.  To modify them in any configuration, use  the  <STRONG>set_escdelay</STRONG>  or
       <STRONG>set_tabsize</STRONG> functions.  Other global variables are not modifiable.

       The <STRONG>get_escdelay</STRONG> function returns the value for ESCDELAY.

       The  <STRONG>use_window</STRONG> and <STRONG>use_screen</STRONG> functions provide coarse granularity mu-
       texes for their respective <STRONG>WINDOW</STRONG> and <STRONG>SCREEN</STRONG> parameters, and call a us-
       er-supplied  function,  passing  it a <EM>data</EM> parameter, and returning the
       value from the user-supplied function to the application.

       All of the ncurses library functions assume that the locale is not  al-
       tered during operation.  In addition, they use data which is maintained
       within a hierarchy of scopes.

          <STRONG>o</STRONG>   global data, e.g., used in the low-level terminfo or termcap in-
              terfaces.

          <STRONG>o</STRONG>   terminal data, e.g., associated with a call to <EM>set</EM><STRONG>_</STRONG><EM>curterm</EM>.  The
              terminal data are initialized when screens are created.

          <STRONG>o</STRONG>   screen data, e.g., associated with a call to <EM>newterm</EM> or <EM>initscr</EM>.

          <STRONG>o</STRONG>   window data, e.g., associated with a call to <EM>newwin</EM>  or  <EM>subwin</EM>.
              Windows  are  associated with screens.  Pads are not necessarily
              associated with a particular screen.

              Most curses applications operate on one or more windows within a
              single screen.

          <STRONG>o</STRONG>   reentrant, i.e., it uses only the data passed as parameters.

       This  table lists the scope of data used for each symbol in the ncurses
       library when it is configured to support threading:

       These routines are specific to ncurses.  They  were  not  supported  on
