DESCRIPTION

       tickit_renderbuffer_text() creates a text region that starts at the current virtual cursor
       position,  containing  the   given   text   string   and   set   to   the   current   pen.
       tickit_renderbuffer_textn()  creates  a  text  region of at most len bytes. It returns the
       number  of  columns  that  the  text  string  occupies.   tickit_renderbuffer_textf()  and
       tickit_renderbuffer_vtextf()  take  a  format  string in the style of sprintf(3) to create
       formatted text from either a list of arguments or a va_list. These functions  will  update
       the virtual cursor position.

       tickit_renderbuffer_text_at(),                             tickit_renderbuffer_textn_at(),
       tickit_renderbuffer_textf_at() and tickit_renderbuffer_vtextf_at() create a text region at
       the  given position, and otherwise operate analogously to their non-_at counterpart. These
       functions do not use or update the virtual cursor position.

       Calls to any of these functions allocate storage owned by the TickitRenderBuffer  instance
       itself    to    store    the    strings.    This    storage    is    released   again   by
       tickit_renderbuffer_reset(3),  the  implicit  reset   that   happens   at   the   end   of
       tickit_renderbuffer_flush_to_term(3),  or  when every cell that was originally part of the
       region has been overwritten with other content.

RETURN VALUE

       These functions return an integer giving the number of columns the new region occupies.
