NAME
       form_userptr - associate application data with a form item

SYNOPSIS
       #include <form.h>
       int set_form_userptr(FORM *form, void *userptr);
       void* form_userptr(const FORM *form);

DESCRIPTION
       Every  form  and every form item has a field that can be used to hold application-specific
       data (that is, the form-driver code leaves it alone).  These functions  get  and  set  the
       form user pointer field.

RETURN VALUE
       The  function  form_userptr  returns NULL on error.  The function set_form_userptr returns
       one of the following:

       E_OK The routine succeeded.

       E_SYSTEM_ERROR
	    System error occurred (see errno).

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.

       The user pointer should be a void pointer.  We leave it as a char pointer for SVr4 compat-
       ibility.
