       insstr,	insnstr,  winsstr,  winsnstr, mvinsstr, mvinsnstr, mvwinsstr, mvwinsnstr - insert
       string before cursor in a curses window

       #include <curses.h>
       int insstr(const char *str);
       int insnstr(const char *str, int n);
       int winsstr(WINDOW *win, const char *str);
       int winsnstr(WINDOW *win, const char *str, int n);
       int mvinsstr(int y, int x, const char *str);
       int mvinsnstr(int y, int x, const char *str, int n);
       int mvwinsstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const char *str);
       int mvwinsnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const char *str, int n);

       These routines insert a character string (as many characters as	will  fit  on  the  line)
       before  the  character  under  the  cursor.  All characters to the right of the cursor are
       shifted right, with the possibility of the rightmost characters on the  line  being  lost.
       The  cursor  position  does not change (after moving to y, x, if specified). The four rou-
       tines with n as the last argument insert a leading substring of at most n characters.   If
       n<=0, then the entire string is inserted.

       If a character in str is a tab, newline, carriage return or backspace, the cursor is moved
       appropriately within the window.  A newline also does a clrtoeol before moving.	Tabs  are
       considered to be at every eighth column.  If a character in str is another control charac-
       ter, it is drawn in the ^X notation.  Calling winch after adding a control character  (and
       moving  to  it, if necessary) does not return the control character, but instead returns a
       character in the ^-representation of the control character.

       All routines that return an integer return ERR upon failure and OK  (SVr4  specifies  only
       "an  integer  value other than ERR") upon successful completion, unless otherwise noted in
       the preceding routine descriptions.

       Note that all but winsnstr may be macros.

       These functions are described in the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4, which adds const quali-
       fiers to the arguments.	The XSI Curses error conditions EILSEQ and EILOVERFLOW associated
       with extended-level conformance are not yet detected (this  implementation  does  not  yet
       support XPG4 multibyte characters).
