Curses chgat

Posts: n/a
Does anyone have a working example of using the `chgat' function from I've tried something similar to the following:

| use Curses;
| initscr();
| $win = new Curses;
| ...
| $win->move($y,$x);
| $win->chgat(20,A_BOLD,0);
| $win->refresh;

(to change 20 characters starting at ($x,$y)) and I get nothing. Any
comments would be helpful (a working example moreso).
