curs_addchstr(3X)					     curs_addchstr(3X)

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

     #include <curses.h>

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

     All of these routines copy chstr directly into the window image structure
     starting at 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
     that fit on the line.

     The position of the window cursor is not advanced.	 These routines work
     faster than waddnstr because they merely copy chstr into the window image
     structure.	 On the other hand, care must be taken when using these
     functions because they don't perform any kind of checking (such as for
     the newline character), they don't advance the current cursor position,
     and they truncate the string, rather then wrapping it around to the new

     All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and an integer value
     other than ERR upon successful completion, unless otherwise noted in the
     preceding routine descriptions.

     The header file curses.h automatically includes the header files stdio.h
     and unctrl.h.

     Note that all routines except waddchnstr may be macros.
