curs_inch(3X)                                                    curs_inch(3X)

NAME
       inch, winch, mvinch, mvwinch - get a character and attributes from a
       curses window

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curses.h>

       chtype inch(void);
       chtype winch(WINDOW *win);
       chtype mvinch(int y, int x);
       chtype mvwinch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);

DESCRIPTION
       These routines return the character, of type chtype, at the current
       position in the named window.  If any attributes are set for that
       position, their values are OR'ed into the value returned.  Constants
       defined in <curses.h> can be used with the & (logical AND) operator to
       extract the character or attributes alone.

   Attributes
       The following bit-masks may be AND-ed with characters returned by
       winch.

       A_CHARTEXT     Bit-mask to extract character
       A_ATTRIBUTES   Bit-mask to extract attributes
       A_COLOR        Bit-mask to extract color-pair field information

NOTES
       Note that all of these routines may be macros.

PORTABILITY
       These functions are described in the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4.

SEE ALSO
       curses(3X).

       Comparable functions in the wide-character (ncursesw) library are
       described in curs_in_wch(3X).
