       Curses Library (libcurses)

       These  routines return a string of type chtype, holding wchar_t charac‐
       ters, starting at the current or specified cursor position in the  cur‐
       rent or specified window and ending at the right margin of the window.

       The  four  functions  with n as the last argument, return the string at
       most n wchar_t characters long.

       Constants defined in <curses.h> can be used with the  &	(logical  AND)
       operator	 to  extract the wchar_t character or the attribute alone from
       any position in chstr (see curs_inwch(3)).

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

       Note that all routines except winwchnstr 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 *in_wchstr and *in_wchnstr 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_in_wchstr, curs_inwch(3)
