       curs_inch,  inch,  winch,  mvinch,  mvwinch  -  Get a character and its
       attributes from a Curses window

       #include <curses.h>

       chtype inch(
	       void ); chtype winch(
	       WINDOW *win ); chtype mvinch(
	       int y,
	       int x ); chtype mvwinch(

       Interfaces documented on this reference page conform to industry	 stan‐
       dards as follows:

       inch, winch, mvinch, mvwinch:  XCURSES4.2

       Refer  to  the  standards(5)  reference page for more information about
       industry standards and associated tags.

       These routines return the character, of type  chtype,  at  the  current
       position	 in the named window. If any attributes are set for that posi‐
       tion, their values are combined (through	 an  inclusive	OR  operation)
       into  the  value	 returned. Constants defined in <curses.h> can be used
       with  the  &  (logical  AND)  operator  to  extract  the	 character  or
       attributes alone.

       The  following  bit-masks  may  be  used	 (logical AND) with characters
       returned by winch.  Bit-mask to extract character Bit-mask  to  extract
       attributes Bit-mask to extract color-pair field information

       The  header  file  <curses.h>  automatically  includes  the header file

       Note that all of these routines may be macros.
