mvwinch - get a character and attributes from a
chtype winch(WINDOW *win);
chtype mvinch(int y, int x);
chtype mvwinch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);
These routines return the character, of type
, 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
can be used with the
(logical AND) operator to extract the character or attributes alone.
The following bit-masks may be AND-ed with characters returned by
|| Bit-mask to extract character
|| Bit-mask to extract attributes
|| Bit-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.
Comparable functions in the wide-character (ncursesw) library are described in curs_in_wch(3X).
