       These routines copy the array of complex characters wchstr
       into  the  window image structure at and after the current
       cursor position.  The four routines with  n  as  the  last
       argument  copy  at  most n elements, but no more than will
       fit on the line.  If n=-1 then the whole array is  copied,
       to  the  maximum number of characters that will fit on the

       The window cursor is not advanced.   These  routines  work
       faster than waddnstr.  On the other hand, they do not per-
       form checking (such as for the newline, backspace, or car-
       riage  return characters), they do not advance the current
       cursor position, they do not expand other control  charac-
       ters  to  ^-escapes,  and  they  truncate the string if it
       crosses the right margin, rather than wrapping  it  around
       to the new line.

       These  routines  end  successfully  on encountering a null
       cchar_t, or when they have filled the current line.  If  a
       complex  character cannot completely fit at the end of the
       current line, the remaining columns are  filled  with  the
       background character and rendition.


       All functions except wadd_wchnstr may be macros.


       All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and OK on


       All these entry points are described  in  the  XSI  Curses
       standard, Issue 4.
