curs_inswch(3)							curs_inswch(3)

       curs_inswch,  inswch,  winswch,	mvinswch, mvwinswch - Insert a wchar_t
       character before the character under the cursor in a Curses window

       #include <curses.h>

       int inswch(
	       chtype wch ); int winswch(
	       WINDOW *win,
	       chtype wch ); int mvinswch(
	       int y,
	       int x,
	       chtype wch ); int mvwinswch(
	       WINDOW *win,
	       int y,
	       int x,
	       chtype wch );

       Curses Library (libcurses)

       These routines insert the character wch, which contains a wide  characā€
       ter, before the character under the cursor. All characters to the right
       of the cursor are moved one space to the right, with the possibility of
       the  rightmost  character on the line being lost. These routines do not
       change the  cursor position after moving to y, x,  if  specified.  This
       does not imply use of the hardware insert-character feature.

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

       Note that inswch, mvinswch, and mvwinswch may be macros.

       The routines described on this reference page are among the MNLS Curses
       functions that are not included in the X/Open Curses CAE specification.
       MNLS routines are supported only for  backward  compatibility  reasons.
       Use the *ins_wch functions in new applications (see curs_ins_wch(3)).

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

       Functions: curses(3), curs_ins_wch(3)
