NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for mvwaddch (netbsd section 3)

CURSES_ADDCH(3) 		   BSD Library Functions Manual 		  CURSES_ADDCH(3)

NAME
     curses_addch, addch, waddch, mvaddch, mvwaddch -- curses add characters to windows routines

LIBRARY
     Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <curses.h>

     int
     addch(chtype ch);

     int
     waddch(WINDOW *win, chtype ch);

     int
     mvaddch(int y, int x, chtype ch);

     int
     mvwaddch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, chtype ch);

DESCRIPTION
     These functions add characters to stdscr or to the specified window.

     The addch() function adds the character given in ch to stdscr at the current cursor position
     and advances the current cursor position by one.  Any character attributes set in ch will be
     merged with the background attributes currently set on stdscr.

     The waddch() function is the same as the addch() function, excepting that the character is
     added to the window specified by win.

     The mvaddch() and mvwaddch() functions are the same as the addch() and waddch() functions,
     respectively, excepting that wmove() is called to move the cursor to the position specified
     by y, x before the character is added to the window.

   LINE DRAWING CHARACTERS
     Some terminals support the display of line drawing and graphics characters.  These charac-
     ters can be added using their defined names, as shown in the table below.	Where the termi-
     nal does not support a specific character, the default (non-graphics) character is displayed
     instead.
