NAME

curs_inswch, inswch, winswch, mvinswch, mvwinswch - Insert a wchar_t character before the character under the cursor in a Curses window  

SYNOPSIS

#include <curses.h>

int inswch( chtype wch ); int winswch( WINDOW *win, chtype wch ); int mvinswch( int y, int x, chtype wch ); int mvwinswch( WINDOW *win, int y, int x, chtype wch );
 

LIBRARY

Curses Library (libcurses)
 

DESCRIPTION

These routines insert the character wch, which contains a wide character, before the character under the cursor. All characters to the right of the cursor are moved one space to the right, with the possibility of the rightmost character on the line being lost. These routines do not change the cursor position after moving to y, x, if specified. This does not imply use of the hardware insert-character feature.
 

NOTES

The header file <curses.h> automatically includes the header file <stdio.h>.

Note that inswch, mvinswch, and mvwinswch may be macros.

The routines described on this reference page are among the MNLS Curses functions that are not included in the X/Open Curses CAE specification. MNLS routines are supported only for backward compatibility reasons. Compaq recommends the use of the *ins_wch functions in new applications (see curs_ins_wch(3)).
 

RETURN VALUES

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