NAME

curs_addstr, addstr, addnstr, waddstr, waddnstr, mvaddstr, mvaddnstr, mvwaddstr, mvwaddnstr - add a string of characters to a curses window and advance cursor  

SYNOPSIS

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

int addstr(char *str);

int addnstr(char *str, int n);

int waddstr(WINDOW *win, char *str);

int waddnstr(WINDOW *win, char *str, int n);

int mvaddstr(int y, int x, char *str);

int mvaddnstr(int y, int x, char *str, int n);

int mvwaddstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, char *str);

int mvwaddnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, char *str, int n);  

DESCRIPTION

All of these routines write all the characters of the null terminated character string str on the given window. It is similar to calling waddch() once for each character in the string. The four routines with n as the last argument write at most n characters. If n is negative, then the entire string will be added.  

RETURN VALUES

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