curs_insch(3)                                       curs_insch(3)

       insch,  winsch,  mvinsch,  mvwinsch  -  insert a character
       before cursor in a curses window

       #include <curses.h>

       int insch(chtype ch);
       int winsch(WINDOW *win, chtype ch);
       int mvinsch(int y, int x, chtype ch);
       int mvwinsch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, chtype ch);

       These routines, insert the character ch before the charac-
       ter  under the cursor.  All characters to the right of the
       cursor are moved one space to the right, with  the  possi-
       bility  of the rightmost character on the line being lost.
       The insertion operation does not change the  cursor  posi-

       All  routines that return an integer return ERR upon fail-
       ure and OK (SVr4 specifies only "an  integer  value  other
       than  ERR")  upon  successful completion, unless otherwise
       noted in the preceding routine descriptions.

       These routines do not necessarily imply use of a  hardware
       insert character feature.

       Note that insch, mvinsch, and mvwinsch may be macros.

       These  functions are described in the XSI Curses standard,
       Issue 4.
