NAME
menu_pattern, set_menu_pattern - set and get menus pattern match buffer SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file... -lmenu -lcurses [ library... ] #include <menu.h> char *menu_pattern(MENU *menu); int set_menu_pattern(MENU *menu, char *pat); DESCRIPTION
Every menu has a pattern buffer to match entered data with menu items. set_menu_pattern() sets the pattern buffer to pat and tries to find the first item that matches the pattern. If it does, the matching item becomes the current item. If not, the current item does not change. menu_pattern() returns the string in the pattern buffer of menu. RETURN VALUES
menu_pattern() returns NULL on error. set_menu_pattern() returns one of the following: E_OK The routine returned successfully. E_SYSTEM_ERROR System error. E_BAD_ARGUMENT An incorrect argument was passed to the routine. E_NO_MATCH The character failed to match. ATTRIBUTES

NAME
menu_pattern - get and set a menu's pattern buffer SYNOPSIS
#include <menu.h> int set_menu_pattern(MENU *menu, const char *pattern); char *menu_pattern(const MENU *menu); DESCRIPTION
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. RETURN VALUE
The function menu_pattern returns NULL on error. The function set_menu_pattern may return the following error codes: E_OK The routine succeeded. E_SYSTEM_ERROR System error occurred (see errno). E_BAD_ARGUMENT Routine detected an incorrect or out-of-range argument. E_NO_MATCH Character failed to match. SEE ALSO
curses(3X), menu(3X). NOTES
The header file <menu.h> automatically includes the header file <curses.h>. PORTABILITY
These routines emulate the System V menu library. They were not supported on Version 7 or BSD versions. AUTHORS
