DESCRIPTION         top

       This implementation can be configured to provide a set of functions
       which improve the ability to manage multiple screens.  This feature
       can be added to any of the configurations supported by ncurses; it
       adds new entrypoints without changing the meaning of any of the
       existing ones.

   IMPROVED FUNCTIONS
       Most of the functions are new versions of existing functions.  A
       parameter is added at the front of the parameter list.  It is a
       SCREEN pointer.

       The existing functions all use the current screen, which is a static
       variable.  The extended functions use the specified screen, thereby
       reducing the number of variables which must be modified to update
       multiple screens.

   NEW FUNCTIONS
       Here are the new functions:

       ceiling_panel
            this returns a pointer to the topmost panel in the given screen.

       ground_panel
            this returns a pointer to the lowest panel in the given screen.

       new_prescr
            when creating a new screen, the library uses static variables
            which have been preset, e.g., by use_env(3X), filter(3X), etc.
            With the screen-pointer extension, there are situations where it
            must create a current screen before the unextended library does.
            The new_prescr function is used internally to handle these
            cases.  It is also provided as an entrypoint to allow
            applications to customize the library initialization.

NOTES         top

       This extension introduces some new names:

       NCURSES_SP_FUNCS
            This is set to the library patch-level number.  In the
            unextended library, this is zero (0), to make it useful for
            checking if the extension is provided.

       NCURSES_SP_NAME
            The new functions are named using the macro NCURSES_SP_NAME,
            which hides the actual implementation.  Currently this adds a
            "_sp" suffix to the name of the unextended function.  This
            manual page indexes the extensions showing the full name.
            However the proper usage of these functions uses the macro, to
            provide for the possibility of changing the naming convention
            for specific library configurations.

       NCURSES_SP_OUTC
            This is a new function-pointer type to use in the screen-pointer
            functions where an NCURSES_OUTC is used in the unextended
            library.

       NCURSES_OUTC
            This is a function-pointer type used for the cases where a
            function passes characters to the output stream, e.g.,
            vidputs(3X).

PORTABILITY         top

       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 ncurses extensions be conditioned using
       NCURSES_SP_FUNCS.
