       int clearok(WINDOW *win,	bool bf);

       int idlok(WINDOW	*win, bool bf);

       int leaveok(WINDOW *win,	bool bf);

       int scrollok(WINDOW *win, bool bf);

       int setscrreg(int top, int bot);

       int wsetscrreg(WINDOW *win, int top, int	bot);

       These functions set options that	deal with  the	output	within	Curses

       The  clearok()  function	assigns	the value of bf	to an internal flag in
       the specified window that governs clearing of the screen	during	a  re-
       fresh. If, during a refresh operation on	the specified window, the flag
       in curscr is TRUE  or  the  flag	 in  the  specified  window  is	 TRUE,
       clearok()  clears  the screen, redraws it in its	entirety, and sets the
       flag to FALSE in	curscr and in the specified window. The	initial	 state
       is unspecified

       The  idlok()  function specifies	whether	the implementation may use the
       hardware	insert-line, delete-line, and scroll features of terminals  so
       equipped.  If  bf  is  TRUE, use	of these features is enabled. If bf is
       FALSE, use of these features is disabled	and lines are instead  redrawn
       as required. The	initial	state is FALSE.

       The leaveok() function controls the cursor position after a refresh op-
       eration.	If bf is TRUE, refresh operations on the specified window  may
       leave  the  terminal's cursor at	an arbitrary position. If bf is	FALSE,
       then at the end of any refresh operation, the terminal's	cursor is  po-
       sitioned	 at the	cursor position	contained in the specified window. The
       initial state is	FALSE.

       The scrollok() function controls	the use	of scrolling.If	 bf  is	 TRUE,
       then  scrolling	is  enabled  for the specified window. If bf is	FALSE,
       scrolling is disabled for the specified window.	The initial  state  is

       The  setscrreg()	and wsetscrreg() functions define a software scrolling
       region in the current or	specified window. The top and bottom arguments
       are  the	line numbers of	the first and last line	defining the scrolling
       region. (Line 0 is the top line of the  window.)	 If  this  option  and
       scrollok()  are	enabled,  an  attempt to move off the last line	of the
       margin causes all lines in the scrolling	region to scroll one  line  in
       the  direction  of  the	first  line. Only characters in	the window are
       scrolled.  If a software	scrolling region is set	and scrollok() is  not
       enabled,	 an  attempt  to move off the last line	of the margin does not
       reposition any lines in the scrolling region.

       win	       Is a pointer to a window.

       bf	       Is a Boolean expression.

       top	       Is the top line of the scrolling	 region	 (top  of  the
		       window is line 0).

       bot	       Is  the bottom line of the scrolling region (top	of the
		       window is line 0).

       Upon successful completion, the setscrreg() and wsetscrreg()  functions
       return OK. Otherwise, they return ERR.

       The other functions always return OK.

       No errors are defined.

	The  only  reason to enable the	idlok()	feature	is to use scrolling to
       achieve the visual effect of motion of a	partial	window,	such as	for  a
       screen editor. In other cases, the feature can be visually annoying.

       The  leaveok() option provides greater efficiency for applications that
       do not use the cursor.
