Sets the coordinates of the virtual screen cursor.
Curses Library (libcurses.a)
setsyx(Y, X) int Y, X;
The setsyx subroutine sets the coordinates of the virtual screen cursor to the specified row and column coordinates. If Y and X are both -1, then the leaveok flag is set. (leaveok may be set by applications that do not use the cursor.)
The setsyx subroutine is intended for use in combination with the getsyx subroutine. These subroutines should be used by a user-defined function that manipulates curses windows but wants the position of the cursor to remain the same. Such a function would do the following:
|X||Specifies the column to set the virtual screen cursor to.|
|Y||Specifies the row to set the virtual screen cursor to.|
This subroutine is part of Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
The doupdate subroutine, getsyx subroutine, leaveok subroutine, wnoutrefresh subroutine.
