curs_extend:  curses_version, use_extended_names - miscel-
       laneous curses extensions


       #include <curses.h>

       const char * curses_version(void);
       int use_extended_names(bool enable);


       These functions are extensions to the curses library which
       do not fit easily into other categories.

       Use  curses_version() to get the version number, including
       patch level of the library, e.g., 5.0.19991023

       The use_extended_names()  function  controls  whether  the
       calling  application  is  able to use user-defined or non-
       standard names which may be  compiled  into  the  terminfo
       description, i.e., via the terminfo or termcap interfaces.
       Normally these names are  available  for  use,  since  the
       essential  descision is made by using the -x option of tic
       to compile extended terminal definitions.  However you can
       disable  this  feature  to  ensure compatiblity with other
       implementations of curses


       These routines are specific to  ncurses.   They  were  not
       supported  on  Version 7, BSD or System V implementations.
       It is recommended that any code depending on them be  con-
       ditioned using NCURSES_VERSION.
