NAME

       addchstr, addchnstr, waddchstr, waddchnstr, mvaddchstr, mvaddchnstr, mvwaddchstr,
       mvwaddchnstr - add a string of characters (and attributes) to a curses window

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curses.h>

       int addchstr(const chtype *chstr);
       int addchnstr(const chtype *chstr, int n);
       int waddchstr(WINDOW *win, const chtype *chstr);
       int waddchnstr(WINDOW *win, const chtype *chstr, int n);
       int mvaddchstr(int y, int x, const chtype *chstr);
       int mvaddchnstr(int y, int x, const chtype *chstr, int n);
       int mvwaddchstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const chtype *chstr);
       int mvwaddchnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const chtype *chstr, int n);

DESCRIPTION

       These routines copy chstr into the window image structure at and after the current  cursor
       position.   The  four routines with n as the last argument copy at most n elements, but no
       more than will fit on the line.  If n=-1 then the whole string is copied, to  the  maximum
       number of characters that will fit on the line.

       The  window  cursor is not advanced, and these routines work faster than waddnstr.  On the
       other hand, they do not perform any kind of checking (such as for the newline,  backspace,
       or  carriage  return characters), they do not advance the current cursor position, they do
       not expand other control characters to ^-escapes, and  they  truncate  the  string  if  it
       crosses the right margin, rather than wrapping it around to the new line.

RETURN VALUES

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

       X/Open  does not define any error conditions.  This implementation returns an error if the
       window pointer is null.

       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

       Note that all routines except waddchnstr may be macros.

PORTABILITY

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