#include <curses.h> chtype inch(void); chtype winch(WINDOW *win); chtype mvinch(int y, int x); chtype mvwinch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x); DESCRIPTION
These routines return the character, of type chtype, at the current position in the named window. If any attributes are set for that posi- tion, their values are OR'ed into the value returned. 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 AND-ed with characters returned by winch. NOTES
Note that all of these routines may be macros. PORTABILITY
These functions are described in the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4. SEE ALSO
ncurses(3NCURSES). Comparable functions in the wide-character (ncursesw) library are described in in_wch(3NCURSES). inch(3NCURSES)
