curs_addstr(3X)                                   curs_addstr(3X)

NAME
       addstr,  addnstr,  waddstr, waddnstr, mvaddstr, mvaddnstr,
       mvwaddstr, mvwaddnstr - add a string of  characters  to  a
       curses window and advance cursor

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curses.h>

       int addstr(const char *str);
       int addnstr(const char *str, int n);
       int waddstr(WINDOW *win, const char *str);
       int waddnstr(WINDOW *win, const char *str, int n);
       int mvaddstr(int y, int x, const char *str);
       int mvaddnstr(int y, int x, const char *str, int n);
       int mvwaddstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const char *str);
       int mvwaddnstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, const char *str,
       int n);

DESCRIPTION
       These  routines  write  the characters of the (null-termi-
       nated) character string str on the given  window.   It  is
       similar  to  calling waddch once for each character in the
       string.  The four routines with n  as  the  last  argument
       write  at  most n characters.  If n is -1, then the entire
       string will be added.

RETURN VALUE
       All routines return the integer ERR upon failure and OK on
       success  (the  SVr4 manuals specify only "an integer value
       other than ERR") upon successful completion.

NOTES
       Note  that  all  of  these  routines  except  waddstr  and
       waddnstr may be macros.

PORTABILITY
       All  these  entry  points  are described in the XSI Curses
       standard, Issue 4.  The XSI errors EILSEQ  and  EOVERFLOW,
       associated  with  extended-level  conformance, are not yet
       detected.
