66 <H2>DESCRIPTION</H2><PRE>
67        These  routines  write  the characters of the (null-termi-
68        nated) character string <EM>str</EM> on the given  window.   It  is
69        similar  to  calling <STRONG>waddch</STRONG> once for each character in the
70        string.  The four routines with <EM>n</EM>  as  the  last  argument
71        write  at  most <EM>n</EM> characters.  If <EM>n</EM> is -1, then the entire
72        string will be added, up to the maximum number of  charac-
73        ters  that  will  fit  on the line, or until a terminating
74        null is reached.
75
76
77 </PRE>
78 <H2>RETURN VALUE</H2><PRE>
79        All routines return the integer <STRONG>ERR</STRONG> upon failure and <STRONG>OK</STRONG> on
80        success  (the  SVr4 manuals specify only "an integer value
81        other than <STRONG>ERR</STRONG>") upon successful completion.
82
83
84 </PRE>
85 <H2>NOTES</H2><PRE>
86        Note  that  all  of  these  routines  except  <STRONG>waddstr</STRONG>  and
87        <STRONG>waddnstr</STRONG> may be macros.

92        All  these  entry  points  are described in the XSI Curses
93        standard, Issue 4.  The XSI errors EILSEQ  and  EOVERFLOW,
94        associated  with  extended-level  conformance, are not yet
95        detected.
