       add_wchstr, add_wchnstr, wadd_wchstr, wadd_wchnstr, mvadd_wchstr,
       mvadd_wchnstr, mvwadd_wchstr, mvwadd_wchnstr - add an array of complex
       characters (and attributes) to a curses window

       #include <curses.h>

       int add_wchstr(const cchar_t *wchstr);
       int add_wchnstr(const cchar_t *wchstr, int n);
       int wadd_wchstr(WINDOW * win, const cchar_t *wchstr);
       int wadd_wchnstr(WINDOW * win, const cchar_t *wchstr, int n);
       int mvadd_wchstr(int y, int x, const cchar_t *wchstr);
       int mvadd_wchnstr(int y, int x, const cchar_t *wchstr, int n);
       int mvwadd_wchstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const cchar_t *wchstr);
       int mvwadd_wchnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const cchar_t *wchstr, int n);

       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 line.

       The window cursor is not advanced.  These routines work faster than
       waddnstr.  On the other hand, they do not perform checking (such as for
       the newline, backspace, or carriage return characters), they do not
       advance the current cursor position, they do not expand other control
       characters 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 success.

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

       curses(3), curs_addchstr(3), curs_addwstr(3)
