curs_move(3X) Library calls curs_move(3X)

move, wmove - move cursor in a curses window

#include <curses.h>
int move(int y, int x);
int wmove(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);

wmove relocates the cursor associated with the curses window win to line y and column x. The terminal's cursor does not move until refresh(3X) is called. The position (y, x) is relative to the upper left-hand corner of the window, which has coordinates (0, 0). ncurses(3X) describes the move variant of this function.

These functions return OK on success and ERR on failure.

They fail if the position (y, x) is outside the window boundaries.

wmove fails if its WINDOW pointer argument is NULL.

move may be implemented as a macro.

X/Open Curses, Issue 4 describes these functions.
