int overlay(const WINDOW *srcwin, WINDOW *dstwin);
int overwrite(const WINDOW *srcwin, WINDOW *dstwin);
int copywin(const WINDOW *srcwin, WINDOW *dstwin, int sminrow,
int smincol, int dminrow, int dmincol, int dmaxrow,
int dmaxcol, int overlay);
overlay, overwriteThe overlay and overwrite routines overlay srcwin on top of dstwin. scrwin and dstwin are not required to be the same size; only text where the two windows overlap is copied. The difference is that overlay is non-destructive (blanks are not copied) whereas overwrite is destructive.
The copywin routine provides a finer granularity of control over the overlay and overwrite routines. As in the prefresh routine, a rectangle is specified in the destination window, (dminrow, dmincol) and (dmaxrow, dmaxcol), and the upper-left-corner coordinates of the source window, (sminrow, smincol). If the argument overlay is true, then copying is non-destructive, as in overlay.
RETURN VALUERoutines that return an integer return ERR upon failure, and OK (SVr4 only specifies "an integer value other than ERR") upon successful completion.
X/Open defines no error conditions. In this implementation, copywin, overlay and overwrite return an error if either of the window pointers are null, or if some part of the window would be placed off-screen.
