NAME
       inch,  winch,  mvinch,  mvwinch - get a character and attributes from a
       curses window

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curses.h>

       chtype inch(void);
       chtype winch(WINDOW *win);
       chtype mvinch(int y, int x);
       chtype mvwinch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);

DESCRIPTION
       These routines return the character, of type  chtype,  at  the  current
       position in the named window.  If any attributes are set for that posi‐
       tion, their values  are	OR'ed  into  the  value	 returned.   Constants
       defined	in <curses.h> can be used with the & (logical AND) operator to
       extract the character or attributes alone.

   Attributes
       The following bit-masks may  be	AND-ed	with  characters  returned  by
       winch.

       A_CHARTEXT     Bit-mask to extract character
       A_ATTRIBUTES   Bit-mask to extract attributes
       A_COLOR	      Bit-mask to extract color-pair field information

NOTES
       Note that all of these routines may be macros.

PORTABILITY
       These functions are described in the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4.

SEE ALSO
       curses(3X).

       Comparable  functions  in  the  wide-character  (ncursesw)  library are
       described in curs_in_wch(3X).
