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
       position 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
       specifies only "an integer value other than ERR") upon successful
       completion.

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.

SEE ALSO
       curses(3X)
