NAME
curs_border, border, wborder, box, whline, wvline - create curses borders, horizontal and vertical lines
SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lcurses [ library ... ] #include <curses.h> int border(chtype ls, chtype rs, chtype ts, chtype bs, chtype tl, chtype tr, chtype bl,chtype br); int wborder(WINDOW *win, chtype ls, chtype rs, chtype ts, chtype bs, chtype tl, chtype tr, chtype bl, chtype br); int box(WINDOW *win, chtype verch, chtype horch); int hline(chtype ch, int n); int whline(WINDOW *win, chtype ch, int n); int vline(chtype ch, int n); int wvline(WINDOW *win, chtype ch, int n);
DESCRIPTION
With the border(), wborder(), and box() routines, a border is drawn around the edges of the window. The arguments and attributes are: ls left side of the border rs right side of the border ts top side of the border bs bottom side of the border tl top left-hand corner tr top right-hand corner bl bottom left-hand corner br bottom right-hand corner If any of these arguments is zero, then the following default values (defined in <curses.h>) are used respectively instead: ACS_VLINE, ACS_VLINE, ACS_HLINE, ACS_HLINE, ACS_ULCORNER, ACS_URCORNER, ACS_BLCORNER, ACS_BRCORNER. box(win, verch, horch) is a shorthand for the following call: wborder(win, verch, verch, horch, horch , 0, 0, 0, 0) hline() and whline() draw a horizontal (left to right) line using ch starting at the current cursor position in the window. The current cursor position is not changed. The line is at most n characters long, or as many as fit into the window. vline() and wvline() draw a vertical (top to bottom) line using ch starting at the current cursor position in the window. The current cur- sor position is not changed. The line is at most n characters long, or as many as fit into the window.
RETURN VALUES
All routines return the integer OK, or a non-negative integer if immedok() is set. See curs_outopts(3CURSES).
