wmove - move curses window cursor
int move(int y, int x);
int wmove(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);
These routines move the cursor associated with the window to line y and
column x. This routine does not move the physical cursor of the terminal
until refresh is called. The position specified is relative to the upper
left-hand corner of the window, which is (0,0).
These routines return ERR upon failure and OK (SVr4
specifies only "an integer value other than ERR") upon successful
Specifically, they return an error
if the window pointer is null, or
if the position is outside the window.
Note that move may be a macro.
These functions are described in the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4.
