curs_insch(3X)							curs_insch(3X)

       insch,  winsch, mvinsch, mvwinsch - insert a character before cursor in
       a curses window

       #include <curses.h>

       int insch(chtype ch);
       int winsch(WINDOW *win, chtype ch);
       int mvinsch(int y, int x, chtype ch);
       int mvwinsch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, chtype ch);

       These routines insert the character ch before the character  under  the
       cursor.	 All characters to the right of the cursor are moved one space
       to the right, with the possibility of the rightmost  character  on  the
       line  being  lost.   The insertion operation does not change the cursor

       All routines that return an integer return  ERR	upon  failure  and  OK
       (SVr4 specifies only "an integer value other than ERR") upon successful
       completion, unless otherwise noted in the  preceding  routine  descrip‐

       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.

       These  routines do not necessarily imply use of a hardware insert char‐
       acter feature.

       Note that insch, mvinsch, and mvwinsch may be macros.

       These functions are described in the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4.


       Comparable functions  in	 the  wide-character  (ncursesw)  library  are
       described in curs_ins_wch(3X).
