curs_ins_wstr(3X)                                            curs_ins_wstr(3X)

       ins_wstr, ins_nwstr, wins_wstr, wins_nwstr, mvins_wstr, mvins_nwstr,
       mvwins_wstr, mvwins_nwstr - insert a wide-character string into a
       curses window

       #include <curses.h>

       int ins_wstr(const wchar_t *wstr);
       int ins_nwstr(const wchar_t *wstr, int n);
       int wins_wstr(WINDOW *win, const wchar_t *wstr);
       int wins_nwstr(WINDOW *win, const wchar_t *wstr, int n);
       int mvins_wstr(int y, int x, const wchar_t *wstr);
       int mvins_nwstr(int y, int x, const wchar_t *wstr, int n);
       int mvwins_wstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const wchar_t *wstr);
       int mvwins_nwstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const wchar_t *wstr, int n);

       These routines insert a wchar_t character string (as many characters as
       will fit on the line) before the character under the cursor.  All
       characters to the right of the cursor are shifted right, with the
       possibility of the rightmost characters on the line being lost.  No
       wrapping is performed.  The cursor position does not change (after
       moving to y, x, if specified).  The four routines with n as the last
       argument insert a leading substring of at most n wchar_t characters.
       If n is less than 1, the entire string is inserted.

       If a character in wstr is a tab, newline, carriage return or backspace,
       the cursor is moved appropriately within the window.  A newline also
       does a clrtoeol before moving.  Tabs are considered to be at every
       eighth column.  If a character in wstr is another control character, it
       is drawn in the ^X notation.  Calling win_wch after adding a control
       character (and moving to it, if necessary) does not return the control
       character, but instead returns a character in the ^-representation of
       the control character.

       Note that all but wins_nwstr may be macros.

       If the first character in the string is a nonspacing character, these
       functions will fail.  XSI does not define what will happen if a
       nonspacing character follows a control character.

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