#include <curses.h>int inwstr(wchar_t *str);int innwstr(wchar_t *str, int n);int winwstr(WINDOW *win, wchar_t *str);int winnwstr(WINDOW *win, wchar_t *str, int n);int mvinwstr(int y, int x, wchar_t *str);int mvinnwstr(int y, int x, wchar_t *str, int n);int mvwinwstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, wchar_t *str);int mvwinnwstr(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, wchar_t *str, int n);
These routines return a string of wchar_t characters in wstr,
extracted starting at the current cursor position in the named
window. Attributes are stripped from the characters. The four
functions with n as the last argument return a leading substring at
most n bytes long (exclusive of the trailing NUL). Transfer stops at
the end of the current line, or when n bytes have been stored at the
location referenced by wstr.
If the size n is not large enough to store a complete character, an
error is generated.
All routines return ERR upon failure. Upon successful completion, the
*inwstr routines return OK, and the *innwstr routines return the
number of characters read into the string.
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.
