       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 *chstr);
       int  mvwaddchnstr(WINDOW	 *win,	int y, int x, const chtype *chstr, int

       These routines copy chstr into the window image structure at and	 after
       the  current cursor position.  The four routines with n as the last ar‐
       gument 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 char‐
       acters 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 perform any kind of 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

       All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and OK on success (the
       SVr4  manuals specify only "an integer value other than ERR") upon suc‐
       cessful completion, unless otherwise noted in the preceding routine de‐

       X/Open  does  not define any error conditions.  This implementation re‐
       turns an error if the window pointer is null.

       Note that all routines except waddchnstr may be macros.

       These entry points are described in the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4.


       Comparable functions in the wide-character (ncursesw) library  are  de‐
       scribed in curs_add_wchstr(3X).
