curs_addwchstr(3CURSES)	   Curses Library Functions    curs_addwchstr(3CURSES)

NAME
       curs_addwchstr,	addwchstr,  addwchnstr,	waddwchstr, waddwchnstr, mvad-
       dwchstr,	mvaddwchnstr, mvwaddwchstr,  mvwaddwchnstr  -  add  string  of
       wchar_t characters (and attributes) to a	curses window

SYNOPSIS
       cc [flag...] file... -lcurses [library...]

       #include<curses.h>

       int addwchstr(chtype *wchstr);

       int addwchnstr(chtype *wchstr, int n);

       int waddwchstr(WINDOW *win, chtype *wchstr);

       int waddwchnstr(WINDOW *win, chtype *wchstr, int	n);

       int mvaddwchstr(int y, int x, chtype *wchstr);

       int mvaddwchnstr(int y,	int x, chtype *wchstr, int n);

       int mvwaddwchstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int	x,  chtype *wchstr);

       int mvwaddwchnstr(WINDOW	*win, int y, int x , chtype *wchstr, int n);

DESCRIPTION
       All  of these routines copy wchstr, which points	to a string of wchar_t
       characters, directly into the window image structure  starting  at  the
       current cursor position.	The four routines with	n as the last argument
       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 that fit	on the
       line.

       The position of the window cursor is not	advanced. These	routines  work
       faster  than   waddnwstr(3CURSES)  because they merely copy wchstr into
       the window image	structure. On the other	hand, care must	be taken  when
       using  these  functions because they don't perform any kind of checking
       (such as	for the	newline	character), they do not	 advance  the  current
       cursor  position, and they truncate the string, rather than wrapping it
       around to the new line.

RETURN VALUE
       All routines return the integer ERR upon	failure	and an	integer	 value
       other  than  ERR	 upon successful completion, unless otherwise noted in
       the preceding routine descriptions.

ATTRIBUTES
       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+
       |      ATTRIBUTE	TYPE	     |	    ATTRIBUTE VALUE	   |

NOTES
       The header file <curses.h>  automatically  includes  the	 header	 files
       <stdio.h>, <unctrl.h> and <widec.h>.

       Note that all routines except  waddwchnstr() may	be macros.

       None of these routines can use the color	attribute in chtype.
