NAME
       menu_spacing - Control spacing between menu items.

SYNOPSIS
       #include <menu.h>
       int set_menu_spacing(MENU *menu,
			    int spc_description,
			    int spc_rows,
			    int spc_columns);
       int menu_spacing(const MENU *menu,
			int* spc_description,
			int* spc_rows,
			int* spc_columns);

DESCRIPTION
       The function set_menu_spacing sets the spacing informations for the menu.  spc_description
       controls the number of spaces between an item name and an item description. It must not be
       larger than TABSIZE. The menu system puts in the middle of this spacing area the pad char-
       acter. The remaining parts are filled with spaces.  spc_rows controls the number  of  rows
       that  are  used	for  an  item. It must not be larger than 3. The menu system inserts then
       blank lines between item rows, these lines will contain the pad character in the appropri-
       ate  positions.	 spc_columns  controls	the number of blanks between columns of items. It
       must not be larger than TABSIZE.  A value of 0 for all the spacing values resets  them  to
       the default, which is 1 for all of them.
       The function menu_spacing passes back the spacing info for the menu. If a pointer is NULL,
       this specific info is simply not returned.

RETURN VALUE
       Both routines return E_OK on success. set_menu_spacing may return E_POSTED if the menu  is
       posted, or E_BAD_ARGUMENT if one of the spacing values is out of range.

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

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

PORTABILITY
       These routines are specific to ncurses.	They were not supported on Version 7, BSD or Sys-
       tem V implementations.  It is recommended that any code depending on them  be  conditioned
       using NCURSES_VERSION.
