curs_inchstr(3X)					      curs_inchstr(3X)


NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     curs_inchstr: inchstr, inchnstr, winchstr,	winchnstr, mvinchstr,
     mvinchnstr, mvwinchstr, mvwinchnstr - get a string	of characters (and
     attributes) from a	curses window

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <curses.h>

     int inchstr(chtype	*chstr);

     int inchnstr(chtype *chstr, int n);
     int winchstr(WINDOW *win, chtype *chstr);

     int winchnstr(WINDOW *win,	chtype *chstr, int n);
     int mvinchstr(int y, int x, chtype	*chstr);

     int mvinchnstr(int	y, int x, chtype *chstr, int n);
     int mvwinchstr(WINDOW *win, int y,	int x, chtype *chstr);

     int mvwinchnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x,	chtype *chstr, int n);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     These routines return a string of type chtype, starting at	the current
     cursor position in	the named window and ending at the right margin	of the
     window.  The four functions with n	as the last argument, return the
     string at most n characters long.	Constants defined in curses.h can be
     used with the & (logical AND) operator to extract the character or	the
     attribute alone from any position in the chstr [see curs_inch(3X)].

RETURN VALUE    [Toc]    [Back]

     All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and an integer value
     other than	ERR upon successful completion.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

     The header	file curses.h automatically includes the header	files stdio.h
     and unctrl.h.

     Note that all routines except winchnstr may be macros.
