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

       cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lcurses [ library ... ]
       #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 struc‐
       ture 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 works
       faster than waddnstr() (see  curs_addstr(3CURSES)) because they	merely
       copy  chstr  into  the  window image structure. On the other hand, care
       must be taken when using these functions because they  do  not  perform
       any  kind  of checking (such as for the newline character), they do not
       advance the current cursor position,  and  they	truncate  the  string,
       rather then wrapping it around to the next line.

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