NAME
       form_post - write or erase forms from associated subwindows

SYNOPSIS
       #include <form.h>
       int post_form(FORM *form);
       int unpost_form(FORM *form);

DESCRIPTION
       The  function  post_form displays a form to its associated subwindow.  To trigger physical
       display of the subwindow, use refresh or some  equivalent  curses  routine  (the  implicit
       doupdate triggered by an curses input request will do).

       The function unpost_form erases form from its associated subwindow.

RETURN VALUE
       These routines return one of the following:

       E_OK The routine succeeded.

       E_SYSTEM_ERROR
	    System error occurred (see errno).

       E_BAD_ARGUMENT
	    Routine detected an incorrect or out-of-range argument.

       E_POSTED
	    The form has already been posted.

       E_BAD_STATE
	    Routine was called from an initialization or termination function.

       E_NO_ROOM
	    Form is too large for its window.

       E_NOT_POSTED
	    The form has not been posted.

       E_NOT_CONNECTED
	    No items are connected to the form.

SEE ALSO
       curses(3X), form(3X).

NOTES
       The header file <form.h> automatically includes the header file <curses.h>.

PORTABILITY
       These  routines	emulate the System V forms library.  They were not supported on Version 7
       or BSD versions.
