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

       cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lcurses [ library ... ]
       #include <curses.h>

       int insstr(char *str);

       int insnstr(char *str, int n);

       int winsstr(WINDOW *win, char *str);

       int winsnstr(WINDOW *win, char *str, int n);

       int mvinsstr(int y, int x, char *str);

       int mvinsnstr(int y, int x, char *str, int n);

       int mvwinsstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, char *str);

       int mvwinsnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, char *str, int n);

       With these routines, a character string (as many characters as will fit
       on the line) is inserted before the character  under  the  cursor.  All
       characters  to the right of the cursor are moved to the 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).
       (This does not imply use of the hardware insert character feature.) The
       four routines with n as the last argument insert 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 character, 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 the representation of the control	 char‐

       All  routines  return the integer ERR upon failure and an integer value
       other than ERR upon successful completion.
