curs_addwch(3X)						       curs_addwch(3X)

     curs_addwch: addwch, waddwch, mvaddwch, mvwaddwch, echowchar, wechowchar
     - add a wchar_t character (with attributes) to a curses window and
     advance cursor

     #include <curses.h>

     int addwch(chtype wch);
     int waddwch(WINDOW *win, chtype wch);
     int mvaddwch(int y, int x, chtype wch);
     int mvwaddwch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, chtype wch);
     int echowchar(chtype wch);
     int wechowchar(WINDOW *win, chtype wch);

     The addwch, waddwch, mvaddwch, and mvwaddwch routines put the character
     wch, holding a wchar_t character, into the window at the current cursor
     position of the window and advance the position of the window cursor.
     Their function is similar to that of putwchar in the C multibyte library.
     At the right margin, an automatic newline is performed.  At the bottom of
     the scrolling region, if scrollok is enabled, the scrolling region is
     scrolled up one line.

     If wch is a tab, newline, 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 wch is another control
     character, it is drawn in the ^X notation.	 Calling winwch after adding a
     control character does not return the control character, but instead
     returns the representation of the control character.

     Video attributes can be combined with a wchar_t character by OR-ing them
     into the parameter.  This results in these attributes also being set.
     (The intent here is that text, including attributes, can be copied from
     one place to another using inwch and addwch.)  [see standout, predefined
     video attribute constants, on the curs_attr(3X) page].

     The echowchar and wechowchar routines are functionally equivalent to a
     call to addwch followed by a call to refresh, or a call to waddwch
     followed by a call to wrefresh.  The knowledge that only a single
     character is being output is taken into consideration and, for non-
     control characters, a considerable performance gain might be seen by
     using these routines instead of their equivalents.

   Line Graphics
     The following variables may be used to add line drawing characters to the
     screen with routines of the addwch family.	 When variables are defined
     for the terminal, the A_ALTCHARSET bit is turned on [see curs_attr(3X)].
     Otherwise, the default character listed below is stored in the variable.
     The names chosen are consistent with the VT100 nomenclature.

     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 addwch, mvaddwch, mvwaddwch, and echowchar may be macros.
