curs_delch(3CURSES)	   Curses Library Functions	   curs_delch(3CURSES)

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

SYNOPSIS
       cc [ flag ... ] file ...	-lcurses [ library ... ]
       #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
       With these routines the character under the cursor  in  the  window  is
       deleted;	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 VALUES
       All  routines  return the integer ERR upon failure and an integer value
       other than ERR upon successful completion.
