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 po-
       sition  in  the named window.  If any attributes	are set	for that posi-
       tion, their values are OR'ed into the value  returned.	Constants  de-
       fined  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.
