       These routines insert a wchar_t character string (as many wchar_t char‐
       acters as will fit on the line) before the character under the  cursor.
       All  characters to the right of the cursor are moved to the right, with
       the possibility of the rightmost characters on the line being lost. The
       routines	 do  not  change  the cursor position after moving to y, x, if
       specified.  (This does not imply use of the hardware  insert  character

       The  four routines with n as the last argument insert at most n wchar_t
       characters.  If n<=0, then the routines insert the entire string.

       If a  character	in  wstr  is  a	 tab,  newline,	 carriage  return,  or
       backspace,  the cursor is moved appropriately within the window. A new‐
       line also results in clrtoeol before moving.  Tabs are considered to be
       at every eighth column. If a character in wstr is another control char‐
       acter, it is drawn in the ^X notation. Calling  winch  after  adding  a
       control	character (and moving to it, if necessary) does not return the
       control character, but instead returns the representation of  the  con‐
       trol character.

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

       Note that all but winsnwstr 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_wstr  and	 *ins_nwstr functions in new applications (see

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

       Functions: curses(3), curs_clear(3), curs_ins_wstr(3), curs_inwch(3)
