NAME

curs_inch, inch, winch, mvinch, mvwinch - get a character and its attributes from a curses window  

SYNOPSIS

#include <curses.h>

chtype inch(void);

chtype winch(WINDOW *win);

chtype mvinch(int y, int x);

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

DESCRIPTION

With these routines, the character, of type chtype, at the current position in the named window is returned. 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 can be AND-ed with characters returned by winch().

A_CHARTEXT Bit-mask to extract character

A_ATTRIBUTES Bit-mask to extract attributes

A_COLOR Bit-mask to extract color-pair field information

NOTES

The header <curses.h> automatically includes the headers <stdio.h> and <unctrl.h>.

Note that all of these routines may be macros.
