70 <H2>DESCRIPTION</H2><PRE>
71        These routines write the characters of the (null-terminat-
72        ed) <STRONG>wchar_t</STRONG> character string <EM>wstr</EM> on the given window.  It
73        is  similar  to constructing a <STRONG>cchar_t</STRONG> for each wchar_t in
74        the  string,  then  calling  <STRONG>wadd_wch</STRONG>  for  the  resulting
75        <STRONG>cchar_t</STRONG>.
76
77        The <EM>mv</EM> routines perform cursor movement once, before writ-
78        ing any characters.  Thereafter, the cursor is advanced as
79        a side-effect of writing to the window.
80
81        The  four  routines  with  <EM>n</EM> as the last argument write at
82        most <EM>n</EM> <STRONG>wchar_t</STRONG> characters.  If <EM>n</EM> is -1,  then  the  entire
83        string  will be added, up to the maximum number of charac-
84        ters that will fit on the line,  or  until  a  terminating
85        null is reached.
86
87
88 </PRE>
89 <H2>RETURN VALUES</H2><PRE>
90        All routines return the integer <STRONG>ERR</STRONG> upon failure and <STRONG>OK</STRONG> on
91        success.
92
93
94 </PRE>
95 <H2>NOTES</H2><PRE>
96        Note that all of these routines except  <STRONG>waddnwstr</STRONG>  may  be
97        macros.
