If \fIch\fR is any control character other than tab, newline, or backspace, it
is drawn in \fB^\fR\fIX\fR notation. Calling \fBwinch\fR after adding a
control character does not return the character itself, but instead returns
the ^-representation of the control character.

Video attributes can be combined with a character argument passed to
\fBaddch\fR or related functions by logical-ORing them into the character.
(Thus, text, including attributes, can be copied from one place to another
