curs_inwch


NAME

curs_inwch, inwch, winwch, mvinwch, mvwinwch - get a wchar_t character and its attributes from a curses window

SYNOPSIS

cc [ flag … ] file-lcurses [ library .. ]
#include <curses.h>

chtype inwch(void);

chtype winwch(WINDOW *win);

chtype mvinwch(int y, int x);

chtype mvwinwch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);

DESCRIPTION

These routines return the wchar_t character, of type chtype, at the current position in the named window. If any attributes are set for that position, their values are OR-ed into the value returned. Constants defined in <curses.h> can be used with the logical AND (&) operator to extract the character or attributes alone.

Attributes
The following bit-masks may be AND-ed with characters returned by winwch().

A_WCHARTEXT Bit-mask to extract character
A_WATTRIBUTES Bit-mask to extract attributes

ATTRIBUTES

See attributes(7) for descriptions of the following attributes:

SEE ALSO

curses(3CURSES), attributes(7)

NOTES

The header file <curses.h> automatically includes the header files <stdio.h>, <unctrl.h> and <widec.h>.

Note that all of these routines may be macros.

None of these routines can use the color attribute in chtype.
