+.SH NAME
+\fBdelch\fR,
+\fBwdelch\fR,
+\fBmvdelch\fR,
+\fBmvwdelch\fR - delete character under the cursor in a \fBcurses\fR window
+.SH SYNOPSIS
+\fB#include <curses.h>\fR
+.sp
+\fBint delch(void);\fR
+.br
+\fBint wdelch(WINDOW *win);\fR
+.br
+\fBint mvdelch(int y, int x);\fR
+.br
+\fBint mvwdelch(WINDOW *win, int y, int x);\fR
+.br
+.SH DESCRIPTION
+These routines delete the character under the cursor; all characters to the
+right of the cursor on the same line are moved to the left one position and the
+last character on the line is filled with a blank. The cursor position does
+not change (after moving to \fIy\fR, \fIx\fR, if specified). (This does not
+imply use of the hardware delete character feature.)
+.SH RETURN VALUE
+All routines return the integer \fBERR\fR upon failure and an \fBOK\fR (SVr4
+specifies only "an integer value other than \fBERR\fR") upon successful
+completion.
+.SH NOTES
+Note that \fBdelch\fR, \fBmvdelch\fR, and \fBmvwdelch\fR may be macros.
+.SH PORTABILITY
+These functions are described in the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4. The
+standard specifies that they return \fBERR\fR on failure, but specifies no
+error conditions.
