CURSES_INSERTCH(3) BSD Library Functions Manual CURSES_INSERTCH(3)NAME
curses_insert, insch, winsch, mvinsch, mvwinsch -- curses insert characters routines
Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses)
winsch(WINDOW *win, chtype ch);
mvinsch(int y, int x, chtype ch);
mvwinsch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, chtype ch);
These functions insert characters on stdscr or on the specified window.
The insch() function inserts the character given in ch at the current cursor position on stdscr. The cursor is not advanced and wrapping is
The winsch() function is the same as the insch() function, excepting that the character is inserted on the window specified by win.
The mvinsch() and mvwinsch() functions are the same as the insch() and insch() functions, respectively, excepting that wmove() is called to
move the cursor to the position specified by y, x before the character is inserted on the window.
Functions returning pointers will return NULL if an error is detected. The functions that return an int will return one of the following
OK The function completed successfully.
ERR An error occurred in the function.

Interfaces documented on this reference page conform to industry standards as follows:
insch, winsch, mvinsch, mvwinsch: XCURSES4.2
Refer to the standards(5) reference page for more information about industry standards and associated tags.
These routines insert the character ch 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.)
The header file <curses.h> automatically includes the header file <stdio.h>.
Note that insch, mvinsch, and mvwinsch may be macros.
All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and OK upon successful completion.

I installed NetBSD 6.1.2 amd64 and can't find the apm utility. Is it not in the base system?
Is it necessary to recompile the default amd64 kernel to use apm?
Or is there a new method for power management and suspend/resume? (2 Replies)
