NAME

       insch, winsch, mvinsch, mvwinsch - insert a character before cursor in a curses window

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curses.h>

       int insch(chtype ch);
       int winsch(WINDOW *win, chtype ch);
       int mvinsch(int y, int x, chtype ch);
       int mvwinsch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, chtype ch);

DESCRIPTION

       These  routines  insert  the  character  ch  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.  The insertion operation
       does not change the cursor position.

RETURN VALUE

       All routines that return an integer return ERR upon failure and OK  (SVr4  specifies  only
       "an  integer  value other than ERR") upon successful completion, unless otherwise noted in
       the preceding routine descriptions.

       Functions with a “mv” prefix first perform a cursor movement using wmove,  and  return  an
       error if the position is outside the window, or if the window pointer is null.

NOTES

       These routines do not necessarily imply use of a hardware insert character feature.

       Note that insch, mvinsch, and mvwinsch may be macros.

PORTABILITY

       These functions are described in the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4.
