CURSES_INSERT(3)         BSD Library Functions Manual         CURSES_INSERT(3)

NAME
     curses_insert, insch, winsch, mvinsch, mvwinsch, insertln, winsertln --
     curses insert characters and lines routines

LIBRARY
     Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses)

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

     int
     insch(chtype ch);

     int
     winsch(WINDOW *win, chtype ch);

     int
     mvinsch(int y, int x, chtype ch);

     int
     mvwinsch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, chtype ch);

     int
     insertln(void);

     int
     winsertln(WINDOW *win);

DESCRIPTION
     These functions insert characters on stdscr or on the specified window.

     The insch() function inserts the character given in ch at the current
     cursor position on stdscr.  The cursor is not advanced and wrapping is
     not performed.

     The winsch() function is the same as the insch() function, excepting that
     the character is inserted on the window specified by win.

     The mvinsch() and mvwinsch() functions are the same as the insch() and
     insch() functions, respectively, excepting that wmove() is called to move
     the cursor to the position specified by y, x before the character is
     inserted on the window.

RETURN VALUES
     Functions returning pointers will return NULL if an error is detected.
     The functions that return an int 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_cursor(3), curses_delch(3)

STANDARDS

     part of the Single Unix Specification.
