NAME
       addstr, addnstr, waddstr, waddnstr, mvaddstr, mvaddnstr, mvwaddstr, mvwaddnstr - add a
       string of characters to a curses window and advance cursor

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curses.h>

       int addstr(const char *str);
       int addnstr(const char *str, int n);
       int waddstr(WINDOW *win, const char *str);
       int waddnstr(WINDOW *win, const char *str, int n);
       int mvaddstr(int y, int x, const char *str);
       int mvaddnstr(int y, int x, const char *str, int n);
       int mvwaddstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const char *str);
       int mvwaddnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const char *str, int n);

DESCRIPTION
       These routines write the characters of the (null-terminated) character string str  on  the
       given window.  It is similar to calling waddch once for each character in the string.  The
       four routines with n as the last argument write at most n characters.  If n  is	-1,  then
       the  entire  string will be added, up to the maximum number of characters that will fit on
       the line, or until a terminating null is reached.

RETURN VALUE
       All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and OK on success (the SVr4 manuals spec-
       ify only "an integer value other than ERR") upon successful completion.

       X/Open  does not define any error conditions.  This implementation returns an error if the
       window pointer is null or if the string pointer is null or if the corresponding	calls  to
       waddch return an error.

NOTES
       Note that all of these routines except waddstr and waddnstr may be macros.

PORTABILITY
       All  these entry points are described in the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4.  The XSI errors
       EILSEQ and EOVERFLOW, associated with extended-level conformance, are not yet detected.
