   int getpary(WINDOW *win);


   The getbegy and getbegx functions return the same data as getbegyx.

   The getcury and getcurx functions return the same data as getyx.

   The getmaxy and getmaxx functions return the same data as getmaxyx.

   The getpary and getparx functions return the same data as getparyx.


   These  functions  return  an integer, or ERR if the window parameter is


   All of these interfaces are provided  as  macros  and  functions.   The
   macros   are   suppressed   (and  only  the  functions  provided)  when
   NCURSES_OPAQUE is defined.  The standard forms such as  getyx  must  be
   implemented  as  macros,  and  (in  this implementation) are defined in
   terms of the functions described here, to avoid  reliance  on  internal
   details of the WINDOW structure.


   These   functions  were  supported  on  Version  7,  BSD  or  System  V
