NAME
       border, wborder, box, hline, whline, vline, wvline, mvhline, mvwhline, mvvline, mvwvline -
       create curses borders, horizontal and vertical lines

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curses.h>
       int border(chtype ls, chtype rs, chtype ts, chtype bs,
	  chtype tl, chtype tr, chtype bl, chtype br);
       int wborder(WINDOW *win, chtype ls, chtype rs,
	  chtype ts, chtype bs, chtype tl, chtype tr,
	  chtype bl, chtype br);
       int box(WINDOW *win, chtype verch, chtype horch);
       int hline(chtype ch, int n);
       int whline(WINDOW *win, chtype ch, int n);
       int vline(chtype ch, int n);
       int wvline(WINDOW *win, chtype ch, int n);
       mvhline(int y, int x, chtype ch, int n);
       mvwhline(WINDOW *, int y, int x, chtype ch, int n);
       int mvvline(int y, int x, chtype ch, int n);
       int mvwvline(WINDOW *, int y, int x, chtype ch, int n);

DESCRIPTION
       The border, wborder and box routines draw a box around the edges of a window.   The  argu-
       ment  ls  is  a	character and attributes used for the left side of the border, rs - right
       side, ts - top side, bs - bottom side, tl - top left-hand corner, tr - top right-hand cor-
       ner,  bl  -  bottom  left-hand corner, and br - bottom right-hand corner.  If any of these
       arguments is zero, then the following  default  values  (defined  in  curses.h)	are  used
       instead:   ACS_VLINE,   ACS_VLINE,   ACS_HLINE,	 ACS_HLINE,  ACS_ULCORNER,  ACS_URCORNER,
       ACS_LLCORNER, ACS_LRCORNER.

       box(win, verch, horch) is a shorthand for the following call: wborder(win,  verch,  verch,
       horch, horch, 0, 0, 0, 0).

       The hline and whline functions draw a horizontal (left to right) line using ch starting at
       the current cursor position in the window.  The current cursor position	is  not  changed.
       The line is at most n characters long, or as many as fit into the window.

       The  vline  and wvline functions draw a vertical (top to bottom) line using ch starting at
       the current cursor position in the window.  The current cursor position	is  not  changed.
       The line is at most n characters long, or as many as fit into the window.

RETURN VALUE
       All  routines return the integer OK.  The SVr4.0 manual says "or a non-negative integer if
       immedok is set", but this appears to be an error.

NOTES
       The borders generated by these functions are inside borders (this is  also  true  of  SVr4
       curses, though the fact is not documented).

       Note that border and box may be macros.

PORTABILITY
       These  functions  are described in the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4.  Additional functions
       mvhline, mvvline, mvwhline, and mvwvline are described  there  which  this  implementation
       does  not yet support.  The standard specifies that they return ERR on failure, but speci-
       fies no error conditions.
