NAME
     dup_field, free_field, link_field, new_field -- form library

LIBRARY
     Curses Form Library (libform, -lform)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <form.h>

     FIELD *
     dup_field(FIELD *field, int frow, int fcol);

     int

     FIELD *
     link_field(FIELD *field, int frow, int fcol);

     FIELD *
     new_field(int rows, int cols, int frow, int fcol, int nrows, int nbuf);

DESCRIPTION
     The dup_field() function duplicates the given field, including any buffers associated with
     the field and returns the pointer to the newly created field.  free_field() destroys the
     field and frees any allocated resources associated with the field.  The function
     link_field() copies the given field to a new field at the location frow and fcol but shares
     the buffers with the original field.  new_field() creates a new field of size rows by cols
     at location frow, fcol on the page, the argument nrows specified the number of off screen
     rows the field has and the nbuf parameter specifies the number of extra buffers attached to
     the field.  There will always be one buffer associated with a field.

RETURN VALUES
     On error dup_field() and new_field() will return NULL.  The functions will one of the fol-
     lowing error values:

     E_OK		The function was successful.
     E_BAD_ARGUMENT	A bad argument was passed to the function.
     E_CONNECTED	The field is connected to a form.
