keyok(3)                                                            keyok(3)




NAME

       keyok - enable or disable a keycode


SYNOPSIS

       #include <curses.h>

       keyok(3) keycode, bool enable);


DESCRIPTION

       This  is an extension to the curses library.  It permits an application
       to disable specific keycodes, rather than use the  keypad  function  to
       disable  all keycodes.  Keys that have been disabled can be re-enabled.


RETURN VALUE

       The keycode must be greater than zero, else ERR  is  returned.   If  it
       does  not  correspond  to  a defined key, then ERR is returned.  If the
       enable parameter is true, then the key must  have  been  disabled,  and
       vice versa.  Otherwise, the function returns OK.


PORTABILITY

       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 conditioned using NCURSES_VERSION.


SEE ALSO

       define_key(3X).
