       addch,  mvaddch, mvwaddch, waddch - add a character (with rendition) to
       a window

       cc [ flag... ] file... -I /usr/xpg4/include  -L	/usr/xpg4/lib \
	-R  /usr/xpg4/lib  -lcurses  [ library... ]

       int addch(const chtype ch);

       int mvaddch(int y, int x, const chtype ch);

       int mvwaddch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const chtype ch);

       int waddch(WINDOW *win, const chtype ch);

       The addch() function writes a character to the stdscr  window   at  the
       current	cursor position.  The mvaddch() and mvwaddch() functions write
       the character  to the position indicated by the x (column) and y	 (row)
       parameters.  The	 mvaddch() function writes the character to the stdscr
       window, while mvwaddch() writes the character to the  window  specified
       by  win.	 The waddch() function is identical to addch(), but writes the
       character to the window specified by win.

       These functions advance the cursor after writing the character. Charac‐
       ters  that do not fit on the end of the current line are wrapped to the
       beginning of the next line unless the current line is the last line  of
       the  window  and scrolling is disabled.	 In that situation, characters
       which extend beyond the end of the line are discarded.

       When ch is a backspace, carriage return, newline, or tab, X/Open Curses
       moves  the cursor appropriately. Each tab character moves the cursor to
       the next tab stop. By default, tab stops	 occur	every  eight  columns.
       When  ch	 is a control character other than backspace, carriage return,
       newline, or tab, it is written using ^x notation, where x  is a	print‐
       able  character.	  When	X/Open	Curses writes ch to the last character
       position on a line, it automatically generates a newline.  When	ch  is
       written to the last character position of a scrolling region and scrol‐
       lok() is enabled, X/Open Curses scrolls the scrolling  region   up  one
       line (see clearok(3XCURSES)).

       On success, these functions return OK. Otherwise, they return ERR.
