We have

chtype  A character, attributes  and a colour-pair

So I'm not sure it's "always safe" but if you're writing for ncurses
only, then take a look at the implementation.

I did not see a macro or function to convert a plain character to
chtype, with my quick look.


 I'm not from the internet, I just work there.
