Switches between screens.
Curses Library (libcurses.a)
#include <curses.h> SCREEN *set_term (SCREEN *new);
The set_term subroutine switches between different screens. The new argument specifies the current screen.
Upon successful completion, the set_term subroutine returns a pointer to the previous screen. Otherwise, it returns a null pointer.
To make the terminal stored in the user-defined SCREEN variable my_terminal the current terminal and then store a pointer to the old terminal in the user-defined variable old_terminal, enter:
SCREEN *old_terminal, *my_terminal; old_terminal = set_term(my_terminal);
This subroutine is part of Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
The initscr (initscr and newterm Subroutine) subroutine, newterm (newterm Subroutine) subroutine.
