       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
       argument 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 characters 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
       successful completion, unless otherwise noted in the preceding routine

       X/Open does not define any error conditions.  This implementation
       returns 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
       described in curs_add_wchstr(3).
