DESCRIPTION

The deleteln and wdeleteln routines do the following: Delete the line under the cursor in the current or specified window Move all lines below the current line up one line Clear the bottom line of the window

These routines do not change the cursor position. (This does not imply use of a hardware delete line feature.)

The insdelln and winsdelln routines do the following: For positive n, insert n lines into the current or specified window above the current line

The n bottom lines are lost. For negative n, delete n lines (starting with the one under the cursor), and move the remaining lines up
The bottom n lines are cleared.

These routines do not change the current cursor position.

The insertln and insertln routines insert a blank line above the current line. The bottom line is lost. (This does not imply use of a hardware insert line feature.)
 

NOTES

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

Note that all routines except winsdelln may be macros.
 

RETURN VALUES

All routines return ERR upon failure and OK upon successful completion.
