Calling the function field_back() will return the character attributes that will be applied
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.
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.
The header <form.h> automatically includes both <curses.h> and <eti.h>.
