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 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.
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.
