NAME
       inch,  winch,  mvinch,  mvwinch - get a character and attributes from a
       curses window

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curses.h>

       chtype inch(void);
       chtype winch(WINDOW *win);
       chtype mvinch(int y, int x);
       chtype mvwinch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);

DESCRIPTION
       These routines return the character, of type  chtype,  at  the  current
       position in(1,8) the named(5,8) window.  If any attributes are set(7,n,1 builtins) for that posi-
       tion, their values  are  OR'ed  into  the  value  returned.   Constants
       defined  in(1,8) <curses.h> can be used with the & (logical AND) operator to
       extract the character or attributes alone.


   Attributes
       The following bit-masks may  be  AND-ed  with  characters  returned  by
       winch.


       A_CHARTEXT     Bit-mask to extract character
       A_ATTRIBUTES   Bit-mask to extract attributes
       A_COLOR        Bit-mask to extract color-pair field information

NOTES
       Note that all of these routines may be macros.

PORTABILITY
       These functions are described in(1,8) the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4.

SEE ALSO
       curses(3X).
