   This  implementation  provides functions which return properties set in
   the WINDOW  structure,  allowing  it  to  be  "opaque"  if  the  symbol
   NCURSES_OPAQUE is defined:

        returns the value set in clearok

        returns the value set in idcok

        returns the value set in idlok

        returns the value set in immedok

        returns the value set in keypad

        returns the value set in leaveok

        returns the value set in nodelay

        returns the value set in notimeout

        returns TRUE if the window is a pad i.e., created by newpad

        returns the value set in scrollok

        returns TRUE if the window is a subwindow, i.e., created by subwin
        or derwin

        returns the value set in syncok

        returns the delay timeout as set in wtimeout.

        returns the parent WINDOW pointer  for  subwindows,  or  NULL  for
        windows having no parent.

        returns the top and bottom rows for the scrolling margin as set in


   These functions all return TRUE or FALSE, except as noted.


   Both a macro and a function are provided for each name.


   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   ncurses   extensions   be   conditioned   using


   ncurses(3NCURSES),         inopts(3NCURSES),         outopts(3NCURSES),
