NAME
       mitem_new - create and destroy menu items

SYNOPSIS
       #include <menu.h>
       ITEM *new_item(const char *name, const char *description);
       int free_item(ITEM *item);

DESCRIPTION
       The  function  new_item allocates a new item and initializes it from the name and descrip-
       tion pointers. Please notice that the item stores  only	the  pointers  to  the	name  and
       description.  Those  pointers must be valid during the lifetime of the item. So you should
       be very careful with names or descriptions allocated on the stack of some routines.
       The function free_item de-allocates an item. Please notice that it is  the  responsibility
       of the application to release the memory for the name or the description of the item.

RETURN VALUE
       The  function  new_item	returns NULL on error.	It sets errno according to the function's
       failure:

       E_BAD_ARGUMENT
	    Routine detected an incorrect or out-of-range argument.

       E_SYSTEM_ERROR
	    System error occurred, e.g., malloc failure.

       The function free_item returns one of the following:

       E_OK The routine succeeded.

       E_BAD_ARGUMENT
	    Routine detected an incorrect or out-of-range argument.

       E_CONNECTED
	    Item is connected to a menu.

       E_SYSTEM_ERROR
	    System error occurred (see errno).

SEE ALSO
       curses(3X), menu(3X).

NOTES
       The header file <menu.h> automatically includes the header file <curses.h>.

PORTABILITY
       These routines emulate the System V menu library.  They were not supported on Version 7 or
       BSD versions.
