CURS_INSWCH(3CURSES) Curses Library Functions CURS_INSWCH(3CURSES)


NAME


curs_inswch, inswch, winswch, mvinswch, mvwinswch - insert a wchar_t
character before the character under the cursor in a curses window

SYNOPSIS


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

int inswch(chtype wch);


int winswch(WINDOW *win, chtype wch);


int mvinswch(int y, int x, chtype wch);


int mvwinswch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, chtype wch);


DESCRIPTION


These routines insert the character wch, holding a wchar_t character,
before the character under the cursor. All characters to the right of the
cursor are moved one space to the right, with the possibility of the
rightmost character on the line being lost. The cursor position does not
change (after moving to y, x, if specified). (This does not imply use of
the hardware insert character feature.)

RETURN VALUE


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

NOTES


The header file <curses.h> automatically includes the header files
<stdio.h>, <unctrl.h> and <widec.h>.


Note that inswch(), mvinswch(), and mvwinswch() may be macros.


None of these routines can use the color attribute in chtype.
