NAME
       wresize - resize a curses window

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curses.h>

       int wresize(WINDOW *win, int lines, int columns);

DESCRIPTION
       The wresize function reallocates storage for an ncurses window to adjust its dimensions to
       the specified values.  If either dimension is larger than the current values, the window's
       data  is  filled with blanks that have the current background rendition (as set by wbkgnd-
       set) merged into them.

RETURN VALUE
       The function returns the integer ERR upon failure and OK on  success.   It  will  fail  if
       either of the dimensions less than or equal to zero, or if an error occurs while (re)allo-
       cating memory for the window.

NOTES
       The only restriction placed on the dimensions is that they  be  greater	than  zero.   The
       dimensions  are	not  compared  to  curses  screen  dimensions  to  simplify  the logic of
       resizeterm.  The caller must ensure that the window's dimensions  fit  within  the  actual
       screen dimensions.

SEE ALSO
       resizeterm(3X).
