curs_addstr(3)      UNIX Programmer's Manual       curs_addstr(3)

NAME

     addstr, addnstr, waddstr, waddnstr, mvaddstr, mvaddnstr,
     mvwaddstr, mvwaddnstr - add a string of characters to a
     curses window and advance cursor

SYNOPSIS

     #include <curses.h>

     int addstr(const char *str);
     int addnstr(const char *str, int n);
     int waddstr(WINDOW *win, const char *str);
     int waddnstr(WINDOW *win, const char *str, int n);
     int mvaddstr(int y, int x, const char *str);
     int mvaddnstr(int y, int x, const char *str, int n);
     int mvwaddstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const char *str);
     int mvwaddnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const char *str, int n);

DESCRIPTION

     These routines write the characters of the (null-terminated)
     character  string  str on the given window. It is similar to
     calling waddch once for each character in  the  string.  The
     four  routines  with  n as the last argument write at most n
     characters. If n is -1, then the entire string will  be  ad-
     ded, up to the maximum number of characters that will fit on
     the line, or until a terminating null is reached.

RETURN VALUE

     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.

     X/Open does not define any error conditions. This  implemen-
     tation  returns an error if the window pointer is null or if
     the string pointer is null or if the corresponding calls  to
     waddch return an error.

NOTES

     Note that all of these routines except waddstr and  waddnstr
     may be macros.

PORTABILITY

     All these entry points are described in the XSI Curses stan-
     dard, Issue 4.  The XSI errors EILSEQ and EOVERFLOW, associ-
     ated with extended-level conformance, are not yet detected.
