NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for wborder (netbsd section 3)

CURSES_BORDER(3)		   BSD Library Functions Manual 		 CURSES_BORDER(3)

NAME
     curses_border, border, box, wborder -- curses border drawing routines

LIBRARY
     Curses Library (libcurses, -lcurses)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <curses.h>

     int
     border(chtype ls, chtype rs, chtype ts, chtype bs, chtype tl, chtype tr, chtype bl,
	 chtype br);

     int
     box(WINDOW *win, chtype vertical, chtype horizontal);

     int
     wborder(WINDOW *win, chtype ls, chtype rs, chtype ts, chtype bs, chtype tl, chtype tr,
	 chtype bl, chtype br);

DESCRIPTION
     These functions draw borders around stdscr or around the specified window.

     The border() function draws a border around stdscr using the characters given as arguments
     to the function.  The ls, rs, ts and bs are the characters used to draw the left, right, top
     and bottom sides, respectively.  The tl, tr, bl and br are the characters used to draw the
     top-left, top-right, bottom-left and bottom-right corners, respectively.  If any of the
     characters have a text portion that is 0 then a default alternate character set character is
     used for that character.  Note that even though the text portion of the argument is 0, the
     argument can still be used to specify the attributes for that portion of the border.  The
     following table shows the default characters for each argument:

	   ls	 ACS_VLINE
	   rs	 ACS_VLINE
	   ts	 ACS_HLINE
	   bs	 ACS_HLINE
	   tl	 ACS_ULCORNER
	   tr	 ACS_URCORNER
	   bl	 ACS_LLCORNER
	   br	 ACS_LRCORNER

     wborder() is the same as border() excepting that the border is drawn around the specified
     window.

     The box() command draws a box around the window given in win using the vertical character
     for the vertical lines and the horizontal character for the horizontal lines.  The corner
     characters of this box will be the defaults as described for border() above.  Passing char-
     acters with text portion that is 0 to box() will result in the same defaults as those for
     border() as described above.

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 values:

     OK   The function completed successfully.
     ERR  An error occurred in the function.

STANDARDS
     The NetBSD Curses library complies with the X/Open Curses specification, part of the Single
     Unix Specification.

HISTORY
     The Curses package appeared in 4.0BSD.
