unibi_from_mem - Man Page

construct a terminal object from a compiled terminfo entry


 #include <unibilium.h>
 unibi_term *unibi_from_mem(const char *p, size_t n);


This function parses a compiled terminfo entry that starts at p and is n bytes long, and constructs a unibi_term object from it. When you're done with this object, you should call unibi_destroy to free it.

unibi_from_mem parses both the traditional ncurses terminfo format (starting with the bytes 1A 01) and the newer "wide integer" format (starting with the bytes 1E 02).

Return Value

A pointer to a new unibi_term. In case of failure, NULL is returned and errno is set.



The bytes p points at don't look like a valid terminfo entry.


n is too small for a valid terminfo entry.
