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, up to the maximum number of characters that will
       fit on the line, or until a terminating null is reached.

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
       successful completion.

       X/Open does not define any error conditions.  This implementation
       returns an error if the window pointer is null or if the string pointer
       is null or if the corresponding calls to waddch return an error.

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).
