-       The  XSI Curses standard, Issue 4 describes these functions.  The func-
-       tion <STRONG>vwprintw</STRONG> is marked TO BE WITHDRAWN, and is to  be  replaced  by  a
-       function  <STRONG>vw_printw</STRONG>  using  the  <STRONG>&lt;stdarg.h&gt;</STRONG> interface.  The Single Unix
-       Specification, Version 2 states that <STRONG>vw_printw</STRONG>   is  preferred  to  <STRONG>vw-</STRONG>

-       used  in  the  same  file  as  <STRONG>&lt;stdarg.h&gt;</STRONG>.   This  implementation  uses
-       <STRONG>&lt;stdarg.h&gt;</STRONG> for both, because that header is included in <STRONG>&lt;curses.h</STRONG>&gt;.
+       In  this implementation, <STRONG>vw_printw</STRONG> and <STRONG>vwprintw</STRONG> are equivalent, to sup-
+       port legacy applications.  However, the latter (<STRONG>vwprintw</STRONG>) is obsolete:

+           by a function <STRONG>vw_printw</STRONG> using the <STRONG>&lt;stdarg.h&gt;</STRONG> interface.
