DESCRIPTION

These functions insert the complex character wch, along with its rendition, in the current or specified window at the current or specified cursor position. These functions: Do not perform wrapping

In other words, 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. Do not change the cursor position after moving to y, x, if specified
This does not imply use of the hardware insert-character feature. Perform special-character processing
 

NOTES

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

Applications can use add_wch to add nonspacing characters to a spacing-complex character already in the window.

Note that ins_wch, mvins_wch, and mvwins_wch may be macros.
