SYNOPSIS

#include <curses.h>

chtype inch(void);
chtype winch(WINDOW *win);
chtype mvinch(int y, int x);
chtype mvwinch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);

DESCRIPTION

These routines return the 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 winch.

A_CHARTEXTBit-mask to extract character
A_ATTRIBUTESBit-mask to extract attributes
A_COLORBit-mask to extract color-pair field information

NOTES

Note that all of these routines may be macros.

PORTABILITY

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