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.

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

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