The field_info() will return the number or rows, columns, field starting row, field starting column, number of off screen rows and number of buffers in rows, cols, frow, fcol, nrow and nbuf respectively. RETURN VALUES
The functions will return one of the following error values: E_OK The function was successful. E_BAD_ARGUMENT A bad argument was passed to the function. SEE ALSO
