1.6.2 Sending Display Commands with Parameters

The termcap library functions tparam and tgoto serve as the analog of printf for terminal string parameters. The newer function tparam is a GNU extension, more general but missing from Unix termcap. The original parameter-encoding function is tgoto, which is preferable for cursor motion.

1.6.2.1 tparam  The general case, for GNU termcap only.
1.6.2.2 tgoto  The special case of cursor motion.
