mvderwin - define window coordinate transformation


#include <curses.h>

int mvderwin(WINDOW *win, int par_y, int par_x);


The mvderwin() function specifies a mapping of characters. The function identifies a mapped area of the parent of the specified window, whose size is the same as the size of the specified window and whose origin is at (par_y, par_x) of the parent window.

That is, mvderwin() defines a coordinate transformation from each position in the mapped area to a corresponding position (same y, x offset from the origin) in the specified window.


Upon successful completion, mvderwin() returns OK. Otherwise, it returns ERR.


No errors are defined.
