72        These  routines insert a <STRONG>wchar_t</STRONG> character string (as many
73        characters as will fit on the line) before  the  character
74        under the cursor.  All characters to the right of the cur-
75        sor are shifted right, with the possibility of the  right-
76        most  characters  on  the line being lost.  No wrapping is
77        performed.  The cursor position  does  not  change  (after
78        moving  to  <EM>y</EM>, <EM>x</EM>, if specified).  The four routines with <EM>n</EM>
79        as the last argument insert a leading substring of at most
80        <EM>n</EM>  <STRONG>wchar_t</STRONG>  characters.   If  <EM>n</EM> is less than 1, the entire
81        string is inserted.
82
83        If a character in <EM>wstr</EM> is a tab, newline, carriage  return
84        or backspace, the cursor is moved appropriately within the
85        window.  A newline also does  a  <STRONG>clrtoeol</STRONG>  before  moving.
86        Tabs  are  considered  to be at every eighth column.  If a
87        character in <EM>wstr</EM> is  another  control  character,  it  is
88        drawn  in the <STRONG>^</STRONG><EM>X</EM> notation.  Calling <STRONG>win_wch</STRONG> after adding a
89        control character (and moving to it,  if  necessary)  does
90        not  return  the  control character, but instead returns a
91        character in the ^-representation of the  control  charac-
92        ter.

97        Note that all but wins_nwstr may be macros.
98
99        If the first character in the string is a nonspacing char-
100        acter, these functions will fail.   XSI  does  not  define
101        what  will happen if a nonspacing character follows a con-
102        trol character.

107        Upon successful completion,  these  functions  return  OK.
108        Otherwise, they return ERR.
109
110        Functions  with a "mv" prefix first perform a cursor move-
111        ment using <STRONG>wmove</STRONG>, and return an error if the  position  is
112        outside the window, or if the window pointer is null.
