SYNOPSIS


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

int inwstr(wchar_t *wstr);


int innwstr(wchar_t *wstr, int n);


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


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


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


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


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


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


DESCRIPTION


These routines return the string of wchar_t characters in wstr starting
at the current cursor position in the named window and ending at the
right margin of the window. Attributes are stripped from the characters.
The four functions with n as the last argument return the string at most
n wchar_t characters long.

RETURN VALUES


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