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 position in the named
       window.	If any attributes are set for that position, their  values  are  OR'ed	into  the
       value  returned.   Constants  defined  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

RETURN VALUE
       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
       Note that all of these routines may be macros.

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

SEE ALSO
       curses(3X).

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