curs_delch(3X)							curs_delch(3X)

NAME
       delch, wdelch, mvdelch, mvwdelch	- delete character under the cursor in
       a curses	window

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curses.h>

       int delch(void);
       int wdelch(WINDOW *win);
       int mvdelch(int y, int x);
       int mvwdelch(WINDOW *win, int y,	int x);

DESCRIPTION
       These routines delete the character under the cursor; all characters to
       the  right  of  the  cursor  on the same	line are moved to the left one
       position	and the	last character on the line is  filled  with  a	blank.
       The  cursor  position  does not change (after moving to y, x, if	speci-
       fied).  (This does not imply use	of the hardware	delete character  fea-
       ture.)

RETURN VALUE
       All routines return the integer ERR upon	failure	and an OK (SVr4	speci-
       fies only "an integer value other than ERR")  upon  successful  comple-
       tion.

NOTES
       Note that delch,	mvdelch, and mvwdelch may be macros.

PORTABILITY
       These functions are described in	the XSI	Curses standard, Issue 4.  The
       standard	specifies that they return ERR on failure,  but	 specifies  no
       error conditions.
