keyok 3x

keyok(3x)                                                            keyok(3x)




NAME

       keyok - enable or disable a keycode


SYNOPSIS

       #include <curses.h>

       int keyok(int keycode, bool enable);


DESCRIPTION

       This  is an extension to the curses library.  It permits an application
       to disable specific keycodes, rather than use the  keypad  function  to
       disable all keycodes.  Keys that have been disabled can be re-enabled.


RETURN VALUE

       The  keycode  must  be  greater than zero, else ERR is returned.  If it
       does not correspond to a defined key, then ERR  is  returned.   If  the
       enable  parameter  is  true,  then the key must have been disabled, and
       vice versa.  Otherwise, the function returns OK.


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.
