       Interfaces  documented on this reference page conform to industry stan‐
       dards as follows:

       addchstr, waddchstr, mvaddchstr,	 mvwaddchstr,  addchnstr,  waddchnstr,
       mvaddchnstr, mvwaddchnstr:  XCURSES4.2

       Refer  to  the  standards(5)  reference page for more information about
       industry standards and associated tags.

       All of these routines copy chstr directly into the window image	struc‐
       ture  starting  at  the	current or specified cursor position. The four
       routines with n as the last argument copy at most n  elements,  but  no
       more than will fit on the line. If n=-1, then all the routines copy the
       whole string, up to the maximum number that fit on the line or until  a
       null terminator is reached.

       The  routines  do  not  advance the position of the window cursor. They
       work faster than waddnstr because they merely copy chstr into the  win‐
       dow  image  structure. On the other hand, care must be taken when using
       these functions because they: Do not perform any kind of checking (such
       as  for	the newline character) Do not advance the current cursor posi‐
       tion Truncate the string, rather then wrapping it around to a new line

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

       Note that all routines except waddchstr and waddchnstr may be macros.

       All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and OK upon successful

       Functions: curses(3)

       Others: standards(5)
