	       WINDOW *win,
	       const cchar_t *wch ); int mvins_wch(
	       int y,

       ins_wch, wins_wch, mvins_wch, mvwins_wch:  XCURSES4.2

       Refer to the standards(5) reference page	 for  more  information	 about

       These functions insert the complex character wch, along with its rendi‐
       tion, in the current or specified window at the	current	 or  specified
       cursor position. These functions: Do not perform wrapping

	      In  other	 words,	 all characters to the right of the cursor are
	      moved one space to the right, with the possibility of the right‐
	      most character on the line being lost.  Do not change the cursor
	      position after moving to y, x, if specified

	      This does not imply use of the  hardware	insert-character  fea‐
	      ture.  Perform special-character processing

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

       Applications can use add_wch to add nonspacing characters to a spacing-
       complex character already in the window.

       Note that ins_wch, mvins_wch, and mvwins_wch may be macros.

       All  these  functions  return OK upon successful completion. Otherwise,
       they return ERR.

       Functions: curses(3), curs_add_wch(3)
