ncdirect_init prepares the FILE provided as fp for colorizing and styling. On success, a pointer to a valid struct ncdirect is returned. NULL is returned on failure. Before the process exits, ncdirect_stop should be called to reset the terminal and free up resources. ncdirect_init places the terminal into "cbreak" (also known as "rare") mode, disabling line-buffering and echo of input. ncdirect_stop restores the terminal state as it was when the corresponding ncdirect_init call was made.
The following flags are defined:
- NCDIRECT_OPTION_INHIBIT_SETLOCALE: Unless this flag is set, ncdirect_init will call setlocale(LC_ALL, NULL). If the result is either "C" or "POSIX", it will print a diagnostic to stderr, and then call setlocale(LC_ALL, ""). This will attempt to set the locale based off the LANG environment variable. Your program should call setlocale(3) itself, usually as one of the first lines.
- NCDIRECT_OPTION_INHIBIT_CBREAK: Unless this flag is set, ncdirect_init will place the terminal into cbreak mode (i.e. disabling echo and line buffering; see tcgetattr(3)).
- NCDIRECT_OPTION_NO_QUIT_SIGHANDLERS: A signal handler will usually be installed for SIGINT, SIGILL, SIGQUIT, SIGSEGV, SIGTERM, and SIGABRT, cleaning up the terminal on such exceptions. With this flag, the handler will not be installed.
An appropriate terminfo(5) entry must exist for the terminal. This entry is usually selected using the value of the TERM environment variable (see getenv(3)), but a non-NULL value for termtype will override this. An invalid terminfo specification can lead to reduced performance, reduced display capabilities, and/or display errors. notcurses natively targets 24bpp/8bpc RGB color, and it is thus desirable to use a terminal with the rgb capability (e.g. xterm's xterm-direct).
ncdirect_dim_x returns the current number of columns, and ncdirect_dim_y the current number of rows.
ncdirect_clear clears the screen using a control code if one exists in terminfo. Otherwise, it prints successive newlines to scroll everything off.
ncdirect_cursor_move_yx moves the cursor to the specified coordinate. -1 can be specified for either y or x to leave that axis unchanged.
ncdirect_enable_cursor and ncdirect_disable_cursor always flush the output stream, taking effect immediately.
ncdirect_cursor_up and friends all move relative to the current position. Attempting to e.g. move up while on the top row will return 0, but have no effect.
ncdirect_readline uses the Readline library to read a (heap-allocated) line of arbitrary length, supporting line-editing controls. For more information, consult readline(3). If you want input echoed to the terminal while using ncdirect_readline, NCDIRECT_OPTION_INHIBIT_CBREAK must be supplied to ncdirect_init.
ncdirect_check_pixel_support must be called (and successfully return) before NCBLIT_PIXEL can be used to render images; see notcurses_visual(3) for more details.
ncdirect_init returns NULL on failure. Otherwise, the return value points to a valid struct ncdirect, which can be used until it is provided to ncdirect_stop.
ncdirect_putstr and ncdirect_printf_aligned return the number of bytes written on success. On failure, they return some negative number.
ncdirect_check_pixel_support returns -1 on error, 0 if there is no pixel support, and 1 if pixel support is successfully detected.
All other functions return 0 on success, and non-zero on error.
