NAME
       curs_instr,  instr,  innstr, winstr, winnstr, mvinstr, mvinnstr,	mvwin-
       str, mvwinnstr -	get a string of	characters from	a curses window

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

       int instr(char *str);

       int innstr(char *str, int n);

       int winstr(WINDOW *win, char *str);

       int winnstr(WINDOW *win,	char *str, int n);

       int mvinstr(int y, int x, char *str);

       int mvinnstr(int	y, int x, char *str, int n);

       int mvwinstr(WINDOW *win, int y,	int x, char *str);

       int mvwinnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x,	char *str, int n);

DESCRIPTION
       These routines return a string of characters in str,  starting  at  the
       current	cursor	position  in  the named	window and ending at the right
       margin of the window. Attributes	are stripped from the characters.  The
       four  functions with n as the last argument return the string at	most n
       characters long.

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