NAME
       addchstr, addchnstr, waddchstr, waddchnstr, mvaddchstr, mvaddchnstr, mvwaddchstr,
       mvwaddchnstr - add a string of characters (and attributes) to a curses window

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curses.h>

       int addchstr(const chtype *chstr);
       int addchnstr(const chtype *chstr, int n);
       int waddchstr(WINDOW *win, const chtype *chstr);
       int waddchnstr(WINDOW *win, const chtype *chstr, int n);
       int mvaddchstr(int y, int x, const chtype *chstr);
       int mvaddchnstr(int y, int x, const chtype *chstr, int n);
       int mvwaddchstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const chtype *chstr);
       int mvwaddchnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const chtype *chstr, int n);

DESCRIPTION
       These functions copy the (null-terminated) chstr array into  the  window  image	structure
       starting  at  the current cursor position.  The four functions with n as the last argument
       copy at most n elements, but no more than will fit on the line.	If n=-1  then  the  whole
       array is copied, to the maximum number of characters that will fit on the line.

       The  window  cursor  is	not advanced.  These functions work faster than waddnstr.  On the
       other hand:

       o   they do not perform checking (such as for the newline, backspace, or  carriage  return
	   characters),

       o   they do not advance the current cursor position,

       o   they do not expand other control characters to ^-escapes, and

       o   they  truncate  the	string	if  it	crosses the right margin, rather than wrapping it
	   around to the new line.

RETURN VALUE
       All functions return the integer ERR upon failure and OK on success.

       X/Open does not define any error conditions.  This implementation returns an error if  the
       window pointer is null.

       Functions  with	a  "mv" prefix first perform a cursor movement using wmove, and return an
       error if the position is outside the window, or if the window pointer is null.

NOTES
       All functions except waddchnstr may be macros.

PORTABILITY
       These entry points are described in the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4.

SEE ALSO
       curs_addstr(3X), curses(3X).

       Comparable  functions  in  the  wide-character  (ncursesw)  library   are   described   in
       curs_add_wchstr(3X).
