CURSES_ECHOCHAR(3)         Library Functions Manual         CURSES_ECHOCHAR(3)

NAME
     curses_echochar, echochar, wechochar, pechochar -- curses add characters
     and then refresh routines

LIBRARY
     Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;curses.h>&gt;

     int
     echochar(const chtype ch);

     int
     wechochar(WINDOW *win, const chtype ch);

     int
     pechochar(WINDOW *pad, const chtype ch);

DESCRIPTION
     These functions add characters to stdscr or to the specified window or
     pad and then cause an immediate refresh() of that window or pad.

     The echochar() function adds the character given in ch to stdscr at the
     current cursor position and advances the current cursor position by one.
     Any character attributes set in ch will be merged with the background
     attributes currently set on stdscr.  stdscr is then refreshed.  Calling
     echochar() is equivalent to calling addch() followed by refresh().

     The wechochar() function is the same as the echochar() function,
     excepting that the character is added to the window specified by win and
     win is refreshed.

     The pechochar() function is the similar to the echochar() function,
     excepting that the character is added to the pad specified by pad and pad
     is refreshed at its previous location on the screen.  Calling pechochar()
     is equivalent to calling addch() followed by prefresh().

RETURN VALUES
     These functions will return one of the following values:

     OK   The function completed successfully.
     ERR  An error occurred in the function.

SEE ALSO
     curses_addch(3), curses_attributes(3), curses_pad(3), curses_refresh(3)

STANDARDS
     The echochar(), wechochar(), and pechochar() functions comply with the
     X/Open Curses specification, part of the Single Unix Specification.

HISTORY
     The Curses package appeared in 4.0BSD.
