These functions write the (null-terminated) character string str on
the given window. It is similar to calling waddch once for each
character in the string.
The mv functions perform cursor movement once, before writing any
characters. Thereafter, the cursor is advanced as a side-effect of
writing to the window.
The four functions with n as the last argument write at most n
characters, or until a terminating null is reached. If n is -1, then
the entire string will be added.
All functions return the integer ERR upon failure and OK on success.
X/Open does not define any error conditions. This implementation
returns an error
· if the window pointer is null or
· if the string pointer is null or
· if the corresponding calls to waddch return an error.
Functions with a "mv" prefix first perform a cursor movement using
wmove, and return an error if the position is outside the window, or
if the window pointer is null.
