menu_pattern - get and set a menu's pattern buffer
int set_menu_pattern(MENU *menu, const char *pattern);
char *menu_pattern(const MENU *menu);
Every menu has an associated pattern match buffer. As input events that are printable
ASCII characters come in, they are appended to this match buffer and tested for a match,
as described in menu_driver(3X).
The function set_menu_pattern sets the pattern buffer for the given menu and tries to find
the first matching item. If it succeeds, that item becomes current; if not, the current
item does not change.
The function menu_pattern returns the pattern buffer of the given menu.
The function menu_pattern returns NULL on error. The function set_menu_pattern may return
the following error codes:
E_OK The routine succeeded.
System error occurred (see errno).
Routine detected an incorrect or out-of-range argument.
Character failed to match.
The header file <menu.h> automatically includes the header file <curses.h>.
These routines emulate the System V menu library. They were not supported on Version 7 or
