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.

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.

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.

SEE ALSO
       curses(3X), curs_addch(3X).
