int move(int y, int x);

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

y
Is the y (row) coordinate of the position of the cursor in the window.

x

Is the x (column) coordinate of the position of the cursor in the window.

win

Is a pointer to the window in which the cursor is to be written.

The move() function moves the logical cursor (for stdscr) to the position specified by y (row) and x (column), where the upper left corner of the window is row 0, column 0. The wmove() function performs the same action, but moves the cursor in the window specified by win. The physical cursor will not move until after a call to refresh(3XCURSES) or doupdate(3XCURSES).

On success, these functions return OK. Otherwise, they return ERR.

None.
