NAME
       insstr,  insnstr,  winsstr,  winsnstr,  mvinsstr, mvinsnstr, mvwinsstr,
       mvwinsnstr - insert string(3,n) before cursor in(1,8) a curses window

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curses.h>
       int insstr(const char *str);
       int insnstr(const char *str, int n);
       int winsstr(WINDOW *win, const char *str);
       int winsnstr(WINDOW *win, const char *str, int n);
       int mvinsstr(int y, int x, const char *str);
       int mvinsnstr(int y, int x, const char *str, int n);
       int mvwinsstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const char *str);
       int mvwinsnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const char *str, int n);

DESCRIPTION
       These routines insert a character string(3,n) (as many  characters  as  will
       fit on the line) before the character under the cursor.  All characters
       to the right of the cursor are shifted 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(3,n) specified). The four routines
       with  n  as  the  last argument insert a leading substring of at most n
       characters.  If n<=0, then the entire string(3,n) is inserted.

       If a character in(1,8) 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(1,8) str is another control character, it
       is drawn in(1,8) the ^X notation.  Calling  winch  after  adding  a  control
       character  (and moving to it, if(3,n) necessary) does not return the control
       character, but instead returns a character in(1,8) the  ^-representation  of
       the control character.

RETURN VALUE
       All  routines  that  return  an  integer return ERR upon failure and OK
       (SVr4 specifies only "an integer value other than ERR") upon successful
       completion,  unless  otherwise  noted in(1,8) the preceding routine descrip-
       tions.

NOTES
       Note that all but winsnstr may be macros.

PORTABILITY
       These functions are described in(1,8) the  XSI  Curses  standard,  Issue  4,
       which  adds  const  qualifiers  to the arguments.  The XSI Curses error(8,n)
       conditions EILSEQ and EILOVERFLOW associated with  extended-level  con-
       formance are not yet detected (this implementation does not yet support
       XPG4 multibyte characters).

SEE ALSO
       curses(3X), curs_clear(3X), curs_inch(3X).
