CURSES_ECHOCHAR(3)         Library Functions Manual         CURSES_ECHOCHAR(3)

     curses_echochar, echochar, wechochar, pechochar - curses add characters
     and then refresh routines

     Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses)

     #include <curses.h>

     echochar(const chtype ch);

     wechochar(WINDOW *win, const chtype ch);

     pechochar(WINDOW *pad, const chtype ch);

     These functions add characters to stdscr or to the specified window or
     pad and then cause an immediate refresh() of that window or pad.

     The echochar() function adds the character given in ch to stdscr at the
     current cursor position and advances the current cursor position by one.
     Any character attributes set in ch will be merged with the background
     attributes currently set on stdscr.  stdscr is then refreshed.  Calling
     echochar() is equivalent to calling addch() followed by refresh().

     The wechochar() function is the same as the echochar() function,
     excepting that the character is added to the window specified by win and
     win is refreshed.

     The pechochar() function is the similar to the echochar() function,
     excepting that the character is added to the pad specified by pad and pad
     is refreshed at its previous location on the screen.  Calling pechochar()
     is equivalent to calling addch() followed by prefresh().

     These functions will return one of the following values:

     OK   The function completed successfully.
     ERR  An error occurred in the function.

     curses_addch(3), curses_attributes(3), curses_pad(3), curses_refresh(3)

     The echochar(), wechochar(), and pechochar() functions comply with the
     X/Open Curses specification, part of the Single Unix Specification.

     The Curses package appeared in 4.0BSD.
