70 <H2>DESCRIPTION</H2><PRE>
71        These routines write the characters of the (null-terminat-
72        ed) character string <EM>str</EM> on the given window.  It is simi-
73        lar  to  calling  <STRONG>waddch</STRONG>  once  for  each character in the
74        string.  The four routines with <EM>n</EM>  as  the  last  argument
75        write  at  most <EM>n</EM> characters.  If <EM>n</EM> is -1, then the entire
76        string will be added, up to the maximum number of  charac-
77        ters  that  will  fit  on the line, or until a terminating
78        null is reached.
79
80
81 </PRE>
82 <H2>RETURN VALUE</H2><PRE>
83        All routines return the integer <STRONG>ERR</STRONG> upon failure and <STRONG>OK</STRONG> on
84        success  (the  SVr4 manuals specify only "an integer value
85        other than <STRONG>ERR</STRONG>") upon successful completion.
86
87        X/Open does not define any error conditions.  This  imple-
88        mentation  returns  an error if the window pointer is null
89        or if the string pointer is null or if  the  corresponding
90        calls to <STRONG>waddch</STRONG> return an error.
91
92
93 </PRE>
94 <H2>NOTES</H2><PRE>
95        Note  that  all  of  these  routines  except  <STRONG>waddstr</STRONG>  and
96        <STRONG>waddnstr</STRONG> may be macros.

100 <H2>PORTABILITY</H2><PRE>
101        All these entry points are described  in  the  XSI  Curses
102        standard,  Issue  4.  The XSI errors EILSEQ and EOVERFLOW,
103        associated with extended-level conformance,  are  not  yet
104        detected.
