curs_addstr(3X)						       curs_addstr(3X)

NAME
       addstr, addnstr,	waddstr, waddnstr, mvaddstr, mvaddnstr,	mvwaddstr,
       mvwaddnstr - add	a string of characters to a curses window and advance
       cursor

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curses.h>

       int addstr(const	char *str);
       int addnstr(const char *str, int	n);
       int waddstr(WINDOW *win,	const char *str);
       int waddnstr(WINDOW *win, const char *str, int n);
       int mvaddstr(int	y, int x, const	char *str);
       int mvaddnstr(int y, int	x, const char *str, int	n);
       int mvwaddstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x,	const char *str);
       int mvwaddnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const char *str, int n);

DESCRIPTION
       These  routines write the characters of the (null-terminated) character
       string str on the given window.	It is similar to calling  waddch  once
       for each	character in the string.  The four routines with n as the last
       argument	write at most n	characters.  If	 n  is	-1,  then  the	entire
       string  will be added, up to the	maximum	number of characters that will
       fit on the line,	or until a terminating null is reached.

RETURN VALUE
       All routines return the integer ERR upon	failure	and OK on success (the
       SVr4  manuals specify only "an integer value other than ERR") upon suc-
       cessful completion.

       X/Open does not define any error	conditions.  This  implementation  re-
       turns  an  error	if the window pointer is null or if the	string pointer
       is null or if the corresponding calls to	waddch return an error.

NOTES
       Note that all of	these routines except  waddstr	and  waddnstr  may  be
       macros.

PORTABILITY
       All  these entry	points are described in	the XSI	Curses standard, Issue
       4.  The XSI errors EILSEQ and EOVERFLOW,	associated with	extended-level
       conformance, are	not yet	detected.
