move(), wmove()

move curses window cursor 

Curses Function


SYNOPSIS

#include <curses.h>

int move(int y, int x);

int wmove(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);


DESCRIPTION

These routines move the cursor associated with the window to line y and column x. This routine does not move the physical cursor of the terminal until refresh() is called. The position specified is relative to the upper left-hand corner of the window, which is (0,0).


RETURN VALUES

These routines return ERR upon failure and OK (SVr4 specifies only "an integer value other than ERR") upon successful completion.


NOTES

Note that move() may be a macro.


PORTABILITY

These functions are described in the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4. The standard specifies that if (y,x) is within a multi-column character, the cursor is moved to the first column of that character; however, this implementation does not yet support the extended-level XSI multi-byte characters.
