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
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 multi-byte
