curs_inchstr(3X)					      curs_inchstr(3X)

       inchstr, inchnstr, winchstr, winchnstr, mvinchstr, mvinchnstr,
       mvwinchstr, mvwinchnstr - get a string of characters (and attributes)
       from a curses window

       #include <curses.h>

       int inchstr(chtype *chstr);
       int inchnstr(chtype *chstr, int n);
       int winchstr(WINDOW *win, chtype *chstr);
       int winchnstr(WINDOW *win, chtype *chstr, int n);
       int mvinchstr(int y, int x, chtype *chstr);
       int mvinchnstr(int y, int x, chtype *chstr, int n);
       int mvwinchstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, chtype *chstr);
       int mvwinchnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, chtype *chstr, int n);

       These  routines	return	a  NULL-terminated array of chtype quantities,
       starting at the current cursor position in the named window and	ending
       at  the	right  margin of the window.  The four functions with n as the
       last argument, return a leading substring at  most  n  characters  long
       (exclusive of the trailing (chtype)0).  Constants defined in <curses.h>
       can be used with the & (logical AND) operator to extract the  character
       or   the	  attribute   alone  from  any	position  in  the  chstr  [see

       All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and an	integer	 value
       other than ERR upon successful completion (the number of characters re‐
       trieved, exclusive of the trailing 0).

       No error conditions are defined.	 If the chstr parameter	 is  null,  no
       data is returned, and the return value is zero.

       Functions  with	a  "mv"	 prefix	 first perform a cursor movement using
       wmove, and return an error if the position is outside the window, or if
       the window pointer is null.

       Note  that  all routines except winchnstr may be macros.	 SVr4 does not
       document whether the result string is zero-terminated; it does not doc‐
       ument  whether  a length limit argument includes any trailing 0; and it
       does not document the meaning of the return value.

       These functions are described in the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4.   It
       is  no more specific than the SVr4 documentation on the trailing 0.  It
       does specify that the successful return of the functions is OK.

       curses(3X), curs_inch(3X).

       Comparable functions in the wide-character (ncursesw) library  are  de‐
       scribed in curs_in_wchstr(3X).
