curs_deleteln(3CURSES)	   Curses Library Functions	curs_deleteln(3CURSES)

NAME
       curs_deleteln, deleteln,	wdeleteln, insdelln, winsdelln,	insertln, win-
       sertln -	delete and insert lines	in a curses window

SYNOPSIS
       cc [ flag ... ] file ...	-lcurses [ library ... ]
       #include	<curses.h>

       int deleteln(void);

       int wdeleteln(WINDOW *win);

       int insdelln(int	n);

       int winsdelln(WINDOW *win, int n);

       int insertln(void);

       int winsertln(WINDOW *win);

DESCRIPTION
       With the	deleteln() and wdeleteln() routines, the line under the	cursor
       in the window is	deleted; all lines below the current line are moved up
       one line. The bottom line of the	window is cleared. The cursor position
       does not	change.	This does not imply use	of a hardware delete line fea-
       ture.

       With the	 insdelln() and	winsdelln() routines, for positive n, insert n
       lines  into  the	 specified window above	the current line. The n	bottom
       lines are lost. For negative n, delete n	lines (starting	with  the  one
       under  the cursor), and move the	remaining lines	up. The	bottom n lines
       are cleared. The	current	cursor position	remains	the same.

       With the	insertln() and insertln() routines, a blank line  is  inserted
       above the current line and the bottom line is lost. This	does not imply
       use of a	hardware insert	line feature.

RETURN VALUES
       All routines return the integer ERR upon	failure	and an	integer	 value
       other than ERR upon successful completion.
