curs_in_wchstr(3X)                                          curs_in_wchstr(3X)

NAME
       in_wchstr, in_wchnstr, win_wchstr, win_wchnstr, mvin_wchstr,
       mvin_wchnstr, mvwin_wchstr, mvwin_wchnstr - get an array of complex
       characters and renditions from a curses window

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curses.h>

       int in_wchstr(cchar_t *wchstr);
       int in_wchnstr(cchar_t *wchstr, int n);
       int win_wchstr(WINDOW *win, cchar_t *wchstr);
       int win_wchnstr(WINDOW *win, cchar_t *wchstr, int n);
       int mvin_wchstr(int y, int x, cchar_t *wchstr);
       int mvin_wchnstr(int y, int x, cchar_t *wchstr, int n);
       int mvwin_wchstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, cchar_t *wchstr);
       int mvwin_wchnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, cchar_t *wchstr, int n);

DESCRIPTION
       These functions return an array of complex characters in wchstr,
       starting at the current cursor position in the named window.
       Attributes (rendition) are stored with the characters.

       The in_wchnstr, mvin_wchnstr, mvwin_wchnstr and win_wchnstr fill the
       array with at most n cchar_t elements.

NOTES
       Note that all routines except win_wchnstr may be macros.

       Reading a line that overflows the array pointed to by wchstr with
       in_wchstr, mvin_wchstr, mvwin_wchstr or win_wchstr causes undefined
       results. Therefore, the use of in_wchnstr, mvin_wchnstr, mvwin_wchnstr,
       or win_wchnstr is recommended.

RETURN VALUES
       Upon successful completion, these functions return OK.  Otherwise, they
       return ERR.

PORTABILITY
       The XSI Curses defines no error conditions.  This implementation checks
       for null pointers, returning ERR in that case.

SEE ALSO
       Functions: curses(3X), curs_in_wch(3X), curs_instr(3X), curs_inwstr(3X)
