     to a field that is not the current field, these attributes can be set by the
     set_field_back() function.  The field_fore() function returns the character attributes that
     will be used to indicate that a field is the currently active one on the form, this
     attribute may be set by using the set_field_fore() function.  The pad character for a field
     is the character that will be printed in all field locations not occupied with actual field
     contents.	The pad character can be retrieved by calling the field_pad() function, the pad
     character is set by using the set_field_pad() function.

RETURN VALUES
     Functions returning pointers will return NULL if an error is detected.  The functions that
     return an int will return one of the following error values:

     E_OK		The function was successful.
