CURS_DELCH(3CURSES) Curses Library Functions CURS_DELCH(3CURSES)


NAME


curs_delch, delch, wdelch, mvdelch, mvwdelch - delete character under
cursor in a curses window

SYNOPSIS


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

int delch(void);


int wdelch(WINDOW *win);


int mvdelch(int y, int x);


int mvwdelch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);


DESCRIPTION


With these routines the character under the cursor in the window is
deleted; all characters to the right of the cursor on the same line are
moved to the left one position and the last character on the line is
filled with a blank. The cursor position does not change (after moving
to y, x, if specified). This does not imply use of the hardware delete
character feature.

RETURN VALUES


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