NAME
curs_inwch, inwch, winwch, mvinwch, mvwinwch - Get a wchar_t character and its attributes from a Curses window SYNOPSIS
#include <curses.h> chtype inwch( void ); chtype winwch( WINDOW *win ); chtype mvinwch( int y, int x ); chtype mvwinwch( WINDOW *win, int y, int x ); LIBRARY
Curses Library (libcurses) DESCRIPTION
These routines return the wide character, of type chtype, at the current or specified position in the current or specified window. If any attributes are set for that position, their values included in the returned value through an inclusive OR operation. Constants defined in <curses.h> can be used with the & (logical AND) operator to extract the character or attributes alone. Attributes The following bit-masks may be used (logical AND operation) with characters returned by winwch: Bit-mask to extract character Bit-mask to extract attributes Bit-mask to extract color-pair field information NOTES
The header file <curses.h> automatically includes the header file <stdio.h>. Note that all of these routines except winwch may be macros. The routines described on this reference page are among the MNLS Curses functions that are not included in the X/Open Curses CAE specifica- tion. MNLS routines are supported only for backward compatibility reasons. Use the *in_wch functions in new applications (see curs_in_wch(3)). SEE ALSO

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.
