curs_addchstr(3X)					     curs_addchstr(3X)

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 ar-
       gument 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 char-
       acters that will	fit on the line.

       The window cursor is not	advanced, and these routines work faster  than
       waddnstr.   On  the other hand, they don't perform any kind of checking
       (such as	for the	newline, backspace, or	carriage  return  characters),
       they don't advance the current cursor position, they don't expand other
       control characters to ^-escapes,	and they truncate  the	string	if  it
       crosses	the  right  margin,  rather then 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 suc-
       cessful completion, unless otherwise noted in the preceding routine de-
       scriptions.

NOTES
       Note that all routines except waddchnstr	may be macros.

PORTABILITY
       All  these entry	points are described in	the XSI	Curses standard, Issue
       4.

SEE ALSO
