Characters to the right of the deleted character are moved one position to the left. The cursor position is unchanged. The wdelch() function is the same as the delch() function, excepting that the character is deleted from the specified window. RETURN VALUES
Functions returning pointers will return NULL if an error is detected. The functions that return an int will return one of the following values: OK The function completed successfully. ERR An error occurred in the function. SEE ALSO

CURSES_INSERTCH(3)					   BSD Library Functions Manual 					CURSES_INSERTCH(3)

NAME
curses_insert, insch, winsch, mvinsch, mvwinsch -- curses insert characters routines LIBRARY
Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses) SYNOPSIS
#include <curses.h> int insch(chtype ch); int winsch(WINDOW *win, chtype ch); int mvinsch(int y, int x, chtype ch); int mvwinsch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, chtype ch); DESCRIPTION
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 not performed. 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. RETURN VALUES
Functions returning pointers will return NULL if an error is detected. The functions that return an int will return one of the following values: OK The function completed successfully. ERR An error occurred in the function. SEE ALSO
