int pechochar(WINDOW *pad, chtype ch);

int pecho_wchar(WINDOW *pad, const chtype *wch);

pad
Is a pointer to the pad in which the character is to be added.

ch

Is a pointer to the character to be written to the pad.

wch

Is a pointer to the complex character to be written to the pad.

The pechochar() function is equivalent to calling waddch(3XCURSES) followed by a call to prefresh(3XCURSES). The pecho_wchar() function is equivalent to calling wadd_wch(3XCURSES) followed by a call to prefresh(). prefresh() reuses the last position of the pad on the screen for its parameters.

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

None.
