       addstr, addnstr, waddstr, waddnstr, mvaddstr, mvaddnstr,
       mvwaddstr, mvwaddnstr - add a string of characters to a
       curses window and advance cursor


       #include <curses.h>

       int addstr(const char *str);
       int addnstr(const char *str, int n);
       int waddstr(WINDOW *win, const char *str);
       int waddnstr(WINDOW *win, const char *str, int n);
       int mvaddstr(int y, int x, const char *str);
       int mvaddnstr(int y, int x, const char *str, int n);
       int mvwaddstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const char *str);
       int mvwaddnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const char *str, int n);


       These routines write the characters of the (null-terminat-
       ed) character string str on the given window.  It is simi-
       lar  to  calling  waddch  once  for  each character in the
       string.  The four routines with n  as  the  last  argument
       write  at  most n characters.  If n is -1, then the entire
       string will be added, up to the maximum number of  charac-
       ters  that  will  fit  on the line, or until a terminating
       null is reached.


       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.

       X/Open does not define any error conditions.  This  imple-
       mentation  returns  an error if the window pointer is null
       or if the string pointer is null or if  the  corresponding
       calls to waddch return an error.


       Note  that  all  of  these  routines  except  waddstr  and
       waddnstr may be macros.


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


       curses(3x), curs_addch(3x).
