curs_delch(3X)							curs_delch(3X)

NAME
       delch, wdelch, mvdelch, mvwdelch	- delete character under the cursor in
       a curses	window

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curses.h>

       int delch(void);
       int wdelch(WINDOW *win);
       int mvdelch(int y, int x);
       int mvwdelch(WINDOW *win, int y,	int x);

DESCRIPTION
       These routines delete the character under the cursor; all characters to
       the  right of the cursor	on the same line are moved to the left one po-
       sition and the last character on	the line is filled with	a blank.   The
       cursor  position	 does not change (after	moving to y, x,	if specified).
       (This does not imply use	of the hardware	delete character feature.)

RETURN VALUE
       All routines return the integer ERR upon	failure	and an OK (SVr4	speci-
       fies  only  "an	integer	value other than ERR") upon successful comple-
       tion.

       Functions with a	"mv" prefix first  perform  a  cursor  movement	 using
       wmove, and return an error if the position is outside the window, or if
       the window pointer is null.

NOTES
       Note that delch,	mvdelch, and mvwdelch may be macros.

PORTABILITY
       These functions are described in	the XSI	Curses standard, Issue 4.  The
       standard	 specifies  that  they return ERR on failure, but specifies no
       error conditions.
