curs_insstr: insstr, insnstr, winsstr, winsnstr, mvinsstr, mvinsnstr, mvwinsstr, mvwinsnstr --
insert string before character under the cursor in a curses window
cc [flag . . .] file -locurses [library . . .]
int insstr(char str);
int insnstr(char str, int n);
int winsstr(WINDOW win, char str);
int winsnstr(WINDOW win, char str, int n);
int mvinsstr(int y, int x, char str);
int mvinsnstr(int y, int x, char str, int n);
int mvwinsstr(WINDOW win, int y, int x, char str);
int mvwinsnstr(WINDOW win, int y, int x, char str, int n);
These routines insert a character string
(as many characters as will fit on the line)
before the character under the cursor.
All characters to the right of the cursor
are moved to the right, with the possibility of
the rightmost characters on the line being lost.
The cursor position does not change
(after moving to y, x, if specified).
(This does not imply use of the hardware insert character feature.)
The four routines with n as the last argument insert at most
If n<=0, then the entire string is inserted.
If a character in str is a tab, newline, carriage return,
or backspace, the cursor
is moved appropriately within the window.
A newline also does a clrtoeol before moving.
Tabs are considered to be at every eighth column.
If a character in str
is another control character, it is drawn in the ^X notation.
Calling winch after adding a control character (and moving to
it, if necessary) does not return the control character, but
instead returns the representation of the control character.
All routines return the integer ERR upon
failure and an integer value other than ERR
upon successful completion.
The header file ocurses.h automatically includes the header files
stdio.h and unctrl.h.
Note that all but winsnstr may be macros.
