curs_inch: inch, winch, mvinch, mvwinch --
get a character and its attributes from a curses window
cc [flag . . .] file -locurses [library . . .]
chtype winch(WINDOW win);
chtype mvinch(int y, int x);
chtype mvwinch(WINDOW win, int y, int x);
These routines return the character, of type chtype,
at the current position in the named window.
If any attributes are set for that position, their values are OR-ed into
the value returned.
Constants defined in ocurses.h
can be used with the & (logical AND)
operator to extract the character or attributes alone.
The following bit-masks may be AND-ed with characters returned by
Bit-mask to extract character
Bit-mask to extract attributes
Bit-mask to extract color-pair field information
The header file ocurses.h automatically includes the header files
stdio.h and unctrl.h.
Note that all of these routines may be macros.
