curs_addstr(3CURSES)	   Curses Library Functions	  curs_addstr(3CURSES)

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

SYNOPSIS
       cc [ flag ... ] file ...	-lcurses [ library ... ]
       #include	<curses.h>

       int addstr(char *str);

       int addnstr(char	*str, int n);

       int waddstr(WINDOW *win,	char *str);

       int waddnstr(WINDOW *win, char *str, int	n);

       int mvaddstr(int	y, int x, char *str);

       int mvaddnstr(int y, int	x, char	*str, int n);

       int mvwaddstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x,	char *str);

       int mvwaddnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, char *str, int	n);

DESCRIPTION
       All  of	these routines write all the characters	of the null terminated
       character string	str on the given window. It is similar to calling wad-
       dch()  once  for	each character in the string. The four routines	with n
       as the last argument write at most n characters.	If n is	negative, then
       the entire string will be added.

RETURN VALUES
       All  routines  return the integer ERR upon failure and an integer value
       other than ERR upon successful completion.

       Note  that  all	routines  except  waddstr()  and waddnstr() may	not be
       macros.
