These routines do the following: Delete the character under the cursor
in the current or specified window Move all characters that are to the
right of the cursor and on the same line to the left one position Fill
the last character on the line with a blank.
These routines do not change the cursor position (after moving to y, x,
if specified). This does not imply use of the hardware delete-character

Note that delch, mvdelch, and mvwdelch may be macros.
All routines return ERR upon failure and OK upon successful completion.
