curs_inch: inch, winch, mvinch, mvwinch - get a character and its
attributes from a curses window
chtype winch(WINDOW *win);
chtype mvinch(int y, int x);
chtype mvwinch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);
These routines return the character, of type chtype, at the current
position in the named window. If any attributes are set for that
position, their values are OR-ed 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 AND-ed with characters returned by winch.
A_CHARTEXT Bit-mask to extract character
A_ATTRIBUTESBit-mask to extract attributes
A_COLOR Bit-mask to extract color-pair field information
The header file curses.h automatically includes the header files stdio.h
Note that all of these routines may be macros.
