move, wmove - move curses window cursor
int move(int y, int x);
int wmove(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);
These routines move the cursor associated with the window to line y and
column x. This routine does not move the physical cursor of the terminal
until refresh is called. The position specified is relative to the
upper left-hand corner of the window, which is (0,0).
These routines return ERR upon failure and OK (SVr4 specifies only "an
integer value other than ERR") upon successful completion.
Note that move may be a macro.
These functions are described in the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4. The
standard specifies that if (y,x) is within a multi-column character,
the cursor is moved to the first column of that character; however,
this implementation does not yet support the extended-level XSI multibyte
