curs_move(3X)							 curs_move(3X)

NAME
       move, wmove - move curses window	cursor

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curses.h>

       int move(int y, int x);
       int wmove(WINDOW	*win, int y, int x);

DESCRIPTION
       These routines move the cursor associated with the window to line y and
       column x.  This routine does not	move the physical cursor of the	termi-
       nal until refresh is called.  The position specified is relative	to the
       upper left-hand corner of the window, which is (0,0).

RETURN VALUE
       These routines return ERR upon failure and OK (SVr4 specifies only  "an
       integer value other than	ERR") upon successful completion.

NOTES
       Note that move may be a macro.

PORTABILITY
       These functions are described in	the XSI	Curses standard, Issue 4.  The
       standard	specifies that if (y,x)	is within  a  multi-column  character,
       the  cursor  is	moved  to the first column of that character; however,
       this implementation does	not yet	support	the extended-level XSI	multi-
       byte characters.

SEE ALSO
