191 <H2>DESCRIPTION</H2><PRE>
192        This  implementation can be configured to provide a set of
193        functions which improve the  ability  to  manage  multiple
194        screens.  This feature can be added to any of the configu-
195        rations supported by  ncurses;  it  adds  new  entrypoints
196        without  changing the meaning of any of the existing ones.
197
198
199    <STRONG>IMPROVED</STRONG> <STRONG>FUNCTIONS</STRONG>
200        Most of the functions are new versions of  existing  func-
201        tions.  A parameter is added at the front of the parameter
202        list.  It is a SCREEN pointer.
203
204        The existing functions all use the current  screen,  which
205        is  a  static  variable.   The  extended functions use the
206        specified screen, thereby reducing the number of variables
207        which must be modified to update multiple screens.
208
209    <STRONG>NEW</STRONG> <STRONG>FUNCTIONS</STRONG>
210        Here are the new functions:
211
212        ceiling_panel
213             this  returns  a  pointer to the topmost panel in the
214             given screen.
215
216        ground_panel
217             this returns a pointer to the  lowest  panel  in  the
218             given screen.
219
220        new_prescr
221             when  creating  a new screen, the library uses static
222             variables  which   have   been   preset,   e.g.,   by
223             <STRONG><A HREF="use_env.3x.html">use_env(3x)</A></STRONG>, <STRONG><A HREF="filter.3x.html">filter(3x)</A></STRONG>, etc.  With the screen-point-
224             er extension, there are situations where it must cre-
225             ate  a  current  screen before the unextended library
226             does.  The <STRONG>new_prescr</STRONG> function is used internally  to
227             handle these cases.  It is also provided as an entry-
228             point to allow applications to customize the  library
229             initialization.
230
231
232 </PRE>
233 <H2>NOTES</H2><PRE>
234        This extension introduces some new names:
235
236        NCURSES_SP_FUNCS
237             This  is  set  to the library patch-level number.  In
238             the unextended library, this is zero (0), to make  it
239             useful for checking if the extension is provided.
240
241        NCURSES_SP_NAME
242             The  new  functions  are named using the macro <EM>NCURS-</EM>
243             <EM>ES</EM><STRONG>_</STRONG><EM>SP</EM><STRONG>_</STRONG><EM>NAME</EM>, which hides  the  actual  implementation.
244             Currently this adds a "_sp" suffix to the name of the
245             unextended function.  This manual  page  indexes  the
246             extensions showing the full name.  However the proper
247             usage of these functions uses the macro,  to  provide
248             for the possibility of changing the naming convention
249             for specific library configurations.
