CURS_ADDWSTR(3CURSES) Curses Library Functions CURS_ADDWSTR(3CURSES)


NAME


curs_addwstr, addwstr, addnwstr, waddwstr, waddnwstr, mvaddwstr,
mvaddnwstr, mvwaddwstr, mvwaddnwstr - add a string of wchar_t characters
to a curses window and advance cursor

SYNOPSIS


cc [flag]... file... -lcurses [library]...


#include <curses.h>

int addwstr(wchar_t *wstr);


int addnwstr(wchar_t *wstr, int n);


int waddwstr(WINDOW *win, wchar_t *wstr);


int waddnwstr(WINDOW *win, wchar_t *wstr, int n);


int mvaddwstr(int y, int x, wchar_t *wstr);


int mvaddnwstr(int y, int x, wchar_t *wstr, int n);


int mvwaddwstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x , wchar_t *wstr);


int mvwaddnwstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, wchar_t *wstr, int n);


DESCRIPTION


All of these routines write all the characters of the null-terminated
wchar_t character string wstr on the given window. The effect is similar
to calling waddwch(3CURSES) once for each wchar_t character in the
string. The four routines with n as the last argument write at most n
wchar_t characters. If n is negative, then the entire string will be
added.

RETURN VALUE


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

<stdio.h>, <nctrl.h> and <widec.h>.


Note that all of these routines except waddwstr() and waddnwstr() may be
macros.
