const char *longname(void);

The longname() function returns a pointer to a static area containing a verbose description (128 characters or fewer) of the terminal. The area is defined after calls to initscr(3XCURSES), newterm(3XCURSES), or setupterm(3XCURSES). The value should be saved if longname() is going to be used with multiple terminals since it will be overwritten with a new value after each call to newterm() or setupterm().

On success, the longname() function returns a pointer to a verbose description of the terminal. Otherwise, it returns a null pointer.

None.
