       addchstr, addchnstr, waddchstr, waddchnstr, mvaddchstr,
       mvaddchnstr, mvwaddchstr, mvwaddchnstr - add a string of
       characters (and attributes) to a curses window


       #include <curses.h>

       int addchstr(const chtype *chstr);
       int addchnstr(const chtype *chstr, int n);
       int waddchstr(WINDOW *win, const chtype *chstr);
       int waddchnstr(WINDOW *win, const chtype *chstr, int n);
       int mvaddchstr(int y, int x, const chtype *chstr);
       int mvaddchnstr(int y, int x, const chtype *chstr, int n);
       int  mvwaddchstr(WINDOW  *win,  int y, int x, const chtype
       int mvwaddchnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x,  const  chtype
       *chstr, int n);


       These  routines copy chstr into the window image structure
       at and after the current cursor position.  The  four  rou-
       tines 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  string  is copied, to the maximum number of charac-
       ters that will fit on the line.

       The window cursor is not advanced, and these routines work
       faster than waddnstr.  On the other hand, they do not per-
       form any kind  of  checking  (such  as  for  the  newline,
       backspace, or carriage return characters), they do not ad-
       vance the current cursor position, they do not expand oth-
       er  control characters to ^-escapes, and they truncate the
       string if it crosses the right margin, rather  than  wrap-
       ping it around to the new line.


       All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and OK on
       success (the SVr4 manuals specify only "an  integer  value
       other than ERR") upon successful completion, unless other-
       wise noted in the preceding routine descriptions.

       X/Open does not define any error conditions.  This  imple-
       mentation returns an error if the window pointer is null.

       Functions  with a "mv" prefix first perform a cursor move-
       ment using wmove, and return an error if the  position  is
       outside the window, or if the window pointer is null.


       Note that all routines except waddchnstr may be macros.


       These  entry  points are described in the XSI Curses stan-
       dard, Issue 4.



       Comparable functions in the wide-character (ncursesw)  li-
       brary are described in curs_add_wchstr(3x).
