FreeBSD 7.0 manual page repository

FreeBSD is a free computer operating system based on BSD UNIX originally. Many IT companies, like DeployIS is using it to provide an up-to-date, stable operating system.

add_wchstr, add_wchnstr, wadd_wchstr, wadd_wchnstr, mvadd_wchstr,



        add_wchstr,   add_wchnstr,   wadd_wchstr,  wadd_wchnstr,  mvadd_wchstr,
        mvadd_wchnstr, mvwadd_wchstr, mvwadd_wchnstr - add an array of  complex
        characters (and attributes) to a curses window


        #include <curses.h>
        int add_wchstr(const cchar_t *wchstr);
        int add_wchnstr(const cchar_t *wchstr, int n);
        int wadd_wchstr(WINDOW * win, const cchar_t *wchstr);
        int wadd_wchnstr(WINDOW * win, const cchar_t *wchstr, int n);
        int mvadd_wchstr(int y, int x, const cchar_t *wchstr);
        int mvadd_wchnstr(int y, int x, const cchar_t *wchstr, int n);
        int mvwadd_wchstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const cchar_t *wchstr);
        int mvwadd_wchnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const cchar_t *wchstr, int n);


        These  routines  copy  the  array of complex characters wchstr 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  array  is
        copied,  to the maximum number of characters that will fit on the line.
        The window cursor is not advanced.  These  routines  work  faster  than
        waddnstr.  On the other hand, they do not perform 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 line.
        These routines end successfully on encountering a null cchar_t, or when
        they have filled the current line.  If a complex character cannot  com‐
        pletely  fit  at the end of the current line, the remaining columns are
        filled with the background character and rendition.


        All functions except wadd_wchnstr may be macros.
        All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and OK on success.


        All these entry points are described in the XSI Curses standard,  Issue
        curses(3X), curs_addchstr(3X), curs_addwstr(3X)


Based on BSD UNIX
FreeBSD is an advanced operating system for x86 compatible (including Pentium and Athlon), amd64 compatible (including Opteron, Athlon64, and EM64T), UltraSPARC, IA-64, PC-98 and ARM architectures. It is derived from BSD, the version of UNIX developed at the University of California, Berkeley. It is developed and maintained by a large team of individuals. Additional platforms are in various stages of development.
