       addchstr,  addchnstr,  waddchstr,  waddchnstr, mvaddchstr, mvaddchnstr,
       mvwaddchstr, mvwaddchnstr - add a string of characters (and attributes)
       to a curses window

       #include <ncurses.h>

       int addchstr(const chtype *chstr);
       int addchnstr(const chtype *chstr, int n);
       int waddchstr(WINDOW *win, const chtype *chstr);
       int waddchnstr(WINDOW *win, const chtype *chstr, int n);
       int mvaddchstr(int y, int x, const chtype *chstr);
       int mvaddchnstr(int y, int x, const chtype *chstr, int n);
       int mvwaddchstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const chtype *chstr);

       These routines copy chstr into the window image structure at and	 after
       the  current  cursor  position.	 The  four routines with n as the last
       argument copy at most n elements, but no more  than  will  fit  on  the
       line.   If  n=-1 then the whole string is copied, to the maximum number
       of characters that will fit on the line.

       The window cursor is not advanced, and these routines work faster  than
       waddnstr.   On  the other hand, they don't perform any kind of checking
       (such as for the newline, backspace, or	carriage  return  characters),
       they don't advance the current cursor position, they don't expand other
       control characters to ^-escapes, and they truncate  the	string	if  it
       crosses	the  right  margin,  rather then wrapping it around to the new

       All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and OK on success (the
       SVr4  manuals specify only "an integer value other than ERR") upon suc‐
       cessful completion, unless otherwise noted  in  the  preceding  routine

       Note that all routines except waddchnstr may be macros.

       All  these entry points are described in the XSI Curses standard, Issue
