CURS_INWCH(3CURSES) Curses Library Functions CURS_INWCH(3CURSES)


NAME


curs_inwch, inwch, winwch, mvinwch, mvwinwch - get a wchar_t character
and its attributes from a curses window

SYNOPSIS


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

chtype inwch(void);


chtype winwch(WINDOW *win);


chtype mvinwch(int y, int x);


chtype mvwinwch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);


DESCRIPTION


These routines return the wchar_t character, of type chtype, at the
current position in the named window. If any attributes are set for that
position, their values are OR-ed into the value returned. Constants
defined in <curses.h> can be used with the logical AND (&) operator to
extract the character or attributes alone.

Attributes


The following bit-masks may be AND-ed with characters returned by
winwch().

A_WCHARTEXT Bit-mask to extract character
A_WATTRIBUTES Bit-mask to extract attributes


ATTRIBUTES


See attributes(7) for descriptions of the following attributes:


+---------------+-----------------+
|ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE |
+---------------+-----------------+
|MT-Level | Unsafe |

NOTES


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


Note that all of these routines may be macros.


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