The scanw(), wscanw() and
mvscanw() routines are analogous to
scanf(). The effect of these routines is as
though wgetstr() were called on the window,
and the resulting line
used as input for sscanf(). Fields which do not
map to a variable in the fmt field are lost.
The vwscanw() routine is similar to
vwprintw() in that it performs a
wscanw() using a variable argument list. The third
argument is a va_list, a pointer to a list of
arguments, as defined in <varargs.h>.
vwscanw() returns ERR on failure and an
integer equal to the
number of fields scanned on success.
Applications may use the return value from the scanw(),
wscanw(), mvscanw() and
mvwscanw() routines to determine the
number of fields which were mapped in the call.
The XSI Curses standard, Issue 4 describes these functions. The function
vwscanw() is marked TO BE WITHDRAWN,
and is to be replaced by a function vw_scanw() using the
