     getyx, getparyx, getbegyx, getmaxyx - get curses cursor and
     window coordinates


     #include <curses.h>

     void getyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);
     void getparyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);
     void getbegyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);
     void getmaxyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);


     The getyx macro places the current cursor position of the
     given window in the two integer variables y and x.

     If win is a subwindow, the getparyx macro places the begin-
     ning coordinates of the subwindow relative to the parent
     window into two integer variables y and x. Otherwise, -1 is
     placed into y and x.

     Like getyx, the getbegyx and getmaxyx macros store the
     current beginning coordinates and size of the specified win-


     The return values of these macros are undefined (i.e., they
     should not be used as the right-hand side of assignment


     All of these interfaces are macros. A "&" is not necessary
     before the variables y and x.


     The getyx, getparyx, getbegyx and getmaxyx functions are
     described in the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4.

     This implementation also provides getbegx, getbegy, getcurx,
     getcury, getmaxx, getmaxy, getparx and getpary for compati-
     bility with older versions of curses.
