int mvprintw(int y, int x, char *fmt, ...);

int mvwprintw(WINDOW *win, int y, int x, char *fmt, ...);

int printw(char *fmt, ...);

int wprintw(WINDOW *win, char *fmt, ...);

y
Is the y (row) coordinate position of the string's placement in the window.

x

Is the x (column) coordinate position of the string's placement in the window.

fmt

Is a printf() format string.

win

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

The mvprintw(), mvwprintw(), printw(), and wprintw() functions are analogous to printf(3C). The effect of these functions is as though sprintf() were used to format the string, and then waddstr(3XCURSES) were used to add that multi-byte string to the current or specified window at the current or specified cursor position.

Upon successful completion, these functions return OK. Otherwise, they return ERR.

No errors are defined.
