curs_inswch(3CURSES)	   Curses Library Functions	  curs_inswch(3CURSES)

NAME
       curs_inswch,  inswch,  winswch,	mvinswch, mvwinswch - insert a wchar_t
       character before	the character under the	cursor in a curses window

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

       int inswch(chtype wch);

       int winswch(WINDOW *win,	chtype wch);

       int mvinswch(int	y, int x, chtype wch);

       int mvwinswch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x,	chtype wch);

DESCRIPTION
       These routines insert the character  wch, holding a  wchar_t character,
       before  the  character under the	cursor.	All characters to the right of
       the cursor are moved one	space to the right, with  the  possibility  of
       the  rightmost  character  on  the line being lost. The cursor position
       does not	change (after moving to	y, x, if specified).  (This  does  not
       imply use of the	hardware insert	character feature.)

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

       None of these routines can use the color	attribute in chtype.
