noqiflush, qiflush - enable/disable queue flushing


#include <curses.h>

void noqiflush(void);

void qiflush(void);


The qiflush() function causes all output in the display driver queue to be flushed whenever an interrupt key (interrupt, suspend, or quit) is pressed. The noqiflush() causes no such flushing to occur. The default for the option is inherited from the display driver settings.


These functions do not return a value.


No errors are defined.


Calling qiflush() provides faster response to interrupts, but causes Curses to have the wrong idea of what is on the screen. The same effect is achieved outside Curses using the NOFLSH local mode flag specified in the XBD specification (General Terminal Interface).
