curs_addchstr(3)                                            curs_addchstr(3)


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


       #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);


       These  functions copy the (null-terminated) chstr array into the window
       image structure starting at the  current  cursor  position.   The  four
       functions  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  array  is
       copied,  to the maximum number of characters that will fit on the line.

       The window cursor is not advanced.  These functions  work  faster  than
       waddnstr.  On the other hand:

       o   they  do  not perform checking (such as for the newline, backspace,
           or carriage return characters),

       o   they do not advance the current cursor position,

       o   they do not expand other control characters to ^-escapes, and

       o   they truncate the string if it crosses  the  right  margin,  rather
           than wrapping it around to the new line.


       All functions return the integer ERR upon failure and OK on success.

       X/Open  does  not define any error conditions.  This implementation re-
       turns 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.


       All functions except waddchnstr may be macros.


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

       Comparable functions in the wide-character (ncursesw) library  are  de-
       scribed in curs_add_wchstr(3X).
