NAME
curs_inswch, inswch, winswch, mvinswch, mvwinswch - insert a wchar_t character before the character under the cursor in a curses window
SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lcurses [ library .. ] #include <curses.h> int inswch(chtype wch); int winswch(WINDOW *win, chtype wch); int mvinswch(int y, int x, chtype wch); int mvwinswch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, chtype wch);
DESCRIPTION
These routines insert the character wch, holding a wchar_t character, before the character under the cursor. All characters to the right of the cursor are moved one space to the right, with the possibility of the rightmost character on the line being lost. The cursor position does not change (after moving to y, x, if specified). (This does not imply use of the hardware insert character feature.)
RETURN VALUE
All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and an integer value other than ERR upon successful completion.
