CURS_ADDSTR(3CURSES) Curses Library Functions CURS_ADDSTR(3CURSES)

NAME


curs_addstr, addstr, addnstr, waddstr, waddnstr, mvaddstr, mvaddnstr,
mvwaddstr, mvwaddnstr - add a string of characters to a curses window and
advance cursor

SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lcurses [ library ... ]
#include <curses.h>

int addstr(char *str);


int addnstr(char *str, int n);


int waddstr(WINDOW *win, char *str);


int waddnstr(WINDOW *win, char *str, int n);


int mvaddstr(int y, int x, char *str);


int mvaddnstr(int y, int x, char *str, int n);


int mvwaddstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, char *str);


int mvwaddnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, char *str, int n);


DESCRIPTION


All of these routines write all the characters of the null terminated
character string str on the given window. It is similar to calling
waddch() once for each character in the string. The four routines with n
as the last argument write at most n characters. If n is negative, then
the entire string will be added.

RETURN VALUES


All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and an integer value
other than ERR upon successful completion.
