there are no tutorials that I'm aware of
(a few manpage references don't count).

I've been adding to the test programs in ncurses to demonstrate these
and other functions.  test/view.c and test/ncurses.c for example.

actually vim doesn't (it uses termcap-level functions to draw text, and
uses the same wide-character/multibyte string functions that ncurses uses
to manipulate the data).
