       Interfaces documented on this reference page conform to industry	 stan‐

       delch, wdelch, mvdelch, mvwdelch:  XCURSES4.2

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

       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

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

       Note that delch, mvdelch, and mvwdelch may be macros.

       All routines return ERR upon failure and OK upon successful completion.

       Functions: curses(3)
