curs_scroll: scroll, srcl, wscrl --
scroll a curses window
cc [flag . . .] file -locurses [library . . .]
int scroll(WINDOW win);
int scrl(int n);
int wscrl(WINDOW win, int n);
With the scroll routine, the window is scrolled up one line.
This involves moving the lines in the window data structure.
As an optimization, if the
scrolling region of the window is the entire screen,
the physical screen is scrolled at the same time.
With the scrl and wscrl routines,
for positive n scroll the window up n lines (line i+n
otherwise scroll the window down n lines.
This involves moving the lines in the window character image structure.
The current cursor position is not changed.
For these functions to work,
scrolling must be enabled via scrollok.
All routines return the integer ERR upon
failure and an integer value other than ERR
upon successful completion.
The header file ocurses.h automatically includes the header files
stdio.h and unctrl.h.
Note that scrl and scroll may be macros.
