CURSES_ADDCHSTR(3)		   BSD Library Functions Manual 	       CURSES_ADDCHSTR(3)

NAME
     curses_addchstr, addchstr, waddchstr, addchnstr, waddchnstr, mvaddchstr, mvwaddchstr,
     mvaddchnstr, mvwaddchnstr -- curses add character strings to windows routines

LIBRARY
     Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <curses.h>

     int
     addchstr(const chtype *chstr);

     int
     waddchstr(WINDOW *win, const chtype *chstr);

     int
     mvaddchstr(int y, int x, const chtype *chstr);

     int
     mvwaddchstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const chtype *chstr);

     int
     addchnstr(const chtype *chstr, int n);

     int
     waddchnstr(WINDOW *win, const chtype *chstr, int n);

     int
     mvaddchnstr(int y, int x, const chtype *chstr, int n);

     int
     mvwaddchnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const chtype *chstr, int n);

DESCRIPTION
     These functions add character strings and attributes to stdscr or to the specified window.

     The addchstr() function will add the characters and their attributes passed in chstr to
     stdscr starting at the current cursor position.  Any character attributes set in chstr will
     be merged with the background attributes currently set on stdscr.	The waddstr() function
     does the same as addchstr() but adds the string to the window specified by win().

     The addchnstr() function will add the contents of string to stdscr but will limit the number
     of characters added to be, at most, n.  If n is -1 then addchnstr will add the number of
     characters contained in the null terminated string chstr.	Any character attributes set in
     chstr will be merged with the background attributes currently set on stdscr.

     The waddchnstr() function does the same as addchnstr but adds the string to the window spec-
     ified by win.

     The functions mvaddchstr(), mwaddchnstr(), mvwaddchstr() and mvwaddchnstr() are the same as
     the functions addchstr(), waddchstr(), waddchstr() and waddchnstr(), respectively, except
     that wmove() is called to move the cursor to the position specified by y, x before the
     string is added to the window.

RETURN VALUES
     The functions will return one of the following values:

     OK   The function completed successfully.
     ERR  An error occurred in the function.

SEE ALSO
     curses_addch(3), curses_addstr(3), curses_attributes(3), curses_cursor(3), curses_inch(3)

STANDARDS
     The NetBSD Curses library complies with the X/Open Curses specification, part of the Single
     Unix Specification.

HISTORY
     These functions first appeared in NetBSD 2.0.
