66        These routines insert the character <EM>ch</EM> before the  charac-
67        ter  under the cursor.  All characters to the right of the
68        cursor are moved one space to the right, with  the  possi-
69        bility  of the rightmost character on the line being lost.
70        The insertion operation does not change the  cursor  posi-
71        tion.

78        than  <STRONG>ERR</STRONG>")  upon  successful completion, unless otherwise
