CURS_INSWSTR(3CURSES) Curses Library Functions CURS_INSWSTR(3CURSES)


NAME


curs_inswstr, inswstr, insnwstr, winswstr, winsnwstr, mvinswstr,
mvinsnwstr, mvwinswstr, mvwinsnwstr - insert wchar_t string before
character under the cursor in a curses window

SYNOPSIS


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

int inswstr(wchar_t *wstr);


int insnwstr(wchar_t *wstr, int n);


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


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


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


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


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


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


DESCRIPTION


These routines insert a wchar_t character string (as many wchar_t
characters as will fit on the line) before the character under the
cursor. All characters to the right of the cursor are moved to the right,
with the possibility of the rightmost characters 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.) The
four routines with n as the last argument insert at most n wchar_t
characters. If n<=0, then the entire string is inserted.


If a character in wstr is a tab, newline, carriage return, or backspace,
the cursor is moved appropriately within the window. A newline also does
a clrtoeol(3CURSES) before moving. Tabs are considered to be at every
eighth column. If a character in wstr is another control character, it
is drawn in the ^X notation. Calling winwch(3CURSES) after adding a
control character (and moving to it, if necessary) does not return the
control character, but instead returns the representation of the control
character.

RETURN VALUE


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