curs_inwch, inwch, winwch, mvinwch, mvwinwch - get a wchar_t character and its attributes from a curses window
cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lcurses [ library .. ] #include <curses.h> chtype inwch(void); chtype winwch(WINDOW *win); chtype mvinwch(int y, int x); chtype mvwinwch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);
These routines return the wchar_t character, of type chtype, at the current position in the named window. If any attributes are set for that position, their values are OR-ed into the value returned. Constants defined in <curses.h> can be used with the logical AND (&) oper- ator to extract the character or attributes alone. Attributes The following bit-masks may be AND-ed with characters returned by winwch(). A_WCHARTEXT Bit-mask to extract character A_WATTRIBUTES Bit-mask to extract attributes

The header file <curses.h> automatically includes the header files <stdio.h>, <unctrl.h> and <widec.h>. Note that all of these routines may be macros. None of these routines can use the color attribute in chtype. SunOS 5.11 31 Dec 1996 curs_inwch(3CURSES)
