void getbegyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);

void getmaxyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);

void getparyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);

void getyx(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);

The getyx() macro stores the current cursor position of the specified window in x and y.

The getparyx() macro stores the x and y coordinates (relative to the parent window) of the specified window's origin (upper-left corner). If win does not point to a subwindow, x and y are set to −1.

The getbegyx() macro stores the x and y coordinates of the specified window's origin (upper-left corner).

The getmaxyx() macro stores the numbers of rows in the specified window in y and the number of columns in x.

win
Is a pointer to a window.

y

stores the y coordinate for the cursor or origin. The getmaxyx() macro uses it to store the number of rows in the window.

x

stores the x coordinate for the cursor or origin. The getmaxyx() macro uses it to store the number of columns in the window.

These macros do not return a value.
