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.

addwstr, addnwstr, waddwstr, waddnwstr, mvaddwstr, mvaddnwstr,



        addwstr, addnwstr, waddwstr, waddnwstr, mvaddwstr, mvaddnwstr,
        mvwaddwstr, mvwaddnwstr - add a string of wide characters to a curses
        window and advance cursor


        #include <curses.h>
        int addwstr(const wchar_t *wstr);
        int addnwstr(const wchar_t *wstr, int n);
        int waddwstr(WINDOW *win, const wchar_t *wstr);
        int waddnwstr(WINDOW *win, const wchar_t *wstr, int n);
        int mvaddwstr(int y, int x, const wchar_t *wstr);
        int mvaddnwstr(int y, int x, const wchar_t *wstr, int n);
        int mvwaddwstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const wchar_t *wstr);
        int mvwaddnwstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const wchar_t *wstr, int n);


        These  routines  write  the characters of the (null-terminated) wchar_t
        character string wstr on the given window.  It is similar to construct‐
        ing a cchar_t for each wchar_t in the string, then calling wadd_wch for
        the resulting cchar_t.
        The mv routines perform cursor movement once, before writing any  char‐
        acters.  Thereafter, the cursor is advanced as a side-effect of writing
        to the window.
        The four routines with n as the last argument write at most  n  wchar_t
        characters.   If  n  is -1, then the entire string will be added, up to
        the maximum number of characters that will fit on the line, or until  a
        terminating null is reached.
        All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and OK on success.


        Note that all of these routines except waddnwstr may be macros.


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