Channels ought not be manually manipulated. They contain several bits used "behind the scenes", and e.g. direct assignment is likely to lead to strange and infrequent failures. To assign one channel pair to another, use ncchannels_set_channels. To assign a channel to a channel pair's foreground, use ncchannels_set_fchannel. To assign a channel to a channel pair's background, use ncchannels_set_bchannel.

ncchannel_palindex extracts the palette index from a channel. The channel must be palette-indexed, or the return value is meaningless. Verify palette indexing with ncchannel_palindex_p. A channel can be set to palette indexed mode (and have the index set) with ncchannel_set_palindex. The index must be less than NCPALETTESIZE.

ncchannels_combine creates a new channel pair using fchan as the foreground channel and bchan as the background channel.

Return Values

Functions returning int return -1 on failure, or 0 on success. Failure is always due to invalid inputs. Functions returning bool are predicates, and return the requested value. Functions returning unsigned forms return the input, modified as requested.

ncchannels_reverse inverts the color components of the two channels, while holding all other elements constant. It's the Notcurses approximation to reverse video.
