67        The <STRONG>overlay</STRONG> and <STRONG>overwrite</STRONG> routines overlay <EM>srcwin</EM>  on  top  of  <EM>dstwin</EM>.
68        <EM>scrwin</EM> and <EM>dstwin</EM> are not required to be the same size; only text where
69        the two windows overlap is copied.  The difference is that  <STRONG>overlay</STRONG>  is
70        non-destructive  (blanks  are not copied) whereas <STRONG>overwrite</STRONG> is destruc-
71        tive.

75        The <STRONG>copywin</STRONG> routine provides a finer granularity of  control  over  the
76        <STRONG>overlay</STRONG>  and <STRONG>overwrite</STRONG> routines.  As in the <STRONG>prefresh</STRONG> routine, a rectan-
77        gle is specified in the  destination  window,  (<EM>dminrow</EM>,  <EM>dmincol</EM>)  and
78        (<EM>dmaxrow</EM>, <EM>dmaxcol</EM>), and the upper-left-corner coordinates of the source
79        window, (<EM>sminrow</EM>, <EM>smincol</EM>).  If the  argument  <EM>overlay</EM>  is  <STRONG>true</STRONG>,  then
80        copying is non-destructive, as in <STRONG>overlay</STRONG>.
81
82
83 </PRE><H2><a name="h2-RETURN-VALUE">RETURN VALUE</a></H2><PRE>
84        Routines  that  return an integer return <STRONG>ERR</STRONG> upon failure, and <STRONG>OK</STRONG> (SVr4
85        only specifies "an integer value other than <STRONG>ERR</STRONG>") upon successful  com-
86        pletion.
87
88        X/Open  defines  no error conditions.  In this implementation, <STRONG>copywin</STRONG>,
89        <STRONG>overlay</STRONG> and <STRONG>overwrite</STRONG> return an error if either of the window  pointers
90        are null, or if some part of the window would be placed off-screen.

94        Note that <STRONG>overlay</STRONG> and <STRONG>overwrite</STRONG> may be macros.

98        The  XSI Curses standard, Issue 4 describes these functions (adding the
99        const qualifiers).  It further specifies their behavior in the presence
100        of  characters with multibyte renditions (not yet supported in this im-
101        plementation).
