       These routines manipulate the  current  attributes  of  the  named  window.   The  current
       attributes  of a window apply to all characters that are written into the window with wad-
       dch, waddstr and wprintw.  Attributes are a property of the character, and move	with  the
       character  through  any	scrolling  and	insert/delete  line/character operations.  To the
       extent possible, they are displayed as appropriate modifications to the graphic	rendition
       of characters put on the screen.

       The routine attrset sets the current attributes of the given window to attrs.  The routine
       attroff turns off the named attributes without turning any other  attributes  on  or  off.
       The  routine  attron turns on the named attributes without affecting any others.  The rou-
       tine standout is the same as attron(A_STANDOUT).  The routine  standend	is  the  same  as
       attrset(A_NORMAL) or attrset(0), that is, it turns off all attributes.

       The  attrset  and related routines do not affect the attributes used when erasing portions
       of the window.  See curs_bkgd(3X) for functions which modify the attributes used for eras-
       ing and clearing.

       The  routine  color_set sets the current color of the given window to the foreground/back-
       ground combination described by the color_pair_number. The parameter opts is reserved  for
       future use, applications must supply a null pointer.

       The  routine  wattr_get returns the current attribute and color pair for the given window;
       attr_get returns the current attribute and color pair for stdscr.   The	remaining  attr_*
       functions  operate  exactly  like the corresponding attr* functions, except that they take
       arguments of type attr_t rather than int.

       The routine chgat changes the attributes of a given number of characters starting  at  the
       current	cursor	location  of  stdscr.  It does not update the cursor and does not perform
       wrapping.  A character count of -1 or greater than the remaining  window  width	means  to
       change  attributes all the way to the end of the current line.  The wchgat function gener-
       alizes this to any window; the mvwchgat function does a cursor  move  before  acting.   In
       these  functions,  the  color  argument is a color-pair index (as in the first argument of
       init_pair, see curs_color(3X)).	The opts argument is not presently used, but is  reserved
       for  the  future (leave it NULL).  Note that changing the attributes does not imply that a
       subsequent refresh will update the screen to match, since the  character  values  are  not
       modified.  Use touchwin to force the screen to match the updated attributes.

       The  following  video  attributes,  defined  in	<curses.h>, can be passed to the routines
       attron, attroff, and attrset, or OR'ed with the characters passed to addch.

			A_NORMAL	Normal display (no highlight)
			A_STANDOUT	Best highlighting mode of the terminal.
			A_UNDERLINE	Underlining
			A_REVERSE	Reverse video
			A_BLINK 	Blinking
			A_DIM		Half bright
			A_BOLD		Extra bright or bold
			A_PROTECT	Protected mode
			A_INVIS 	Invisible or blank mode
			A_ALTCHARSET	Alternate character set
			A_CHARTEXT	Bit-mask to extract a character
			COLOR_PAIR(n)	Color-pair number n

       The following macro is the reverse of COLOR_PAIR(n):

       PAIR_NUMBER(attrs) Returns the pair number associated
			  with the COLOR_PAIR(n) attribute.

       The return values of many of these routines are not meaningful (they  are  implemented  as
       macro-expanded assignments and simply return their argument).  The SVr4 manual page claims
       (falsely) that these routines always return 1.

       Note that attroff, wattroff, attron, wattron, attrset, wattrset, standend and standout may
       be macros.

       All  these  functions  are  supported  in  the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4.  The standard
       defined the dedicated type for highlights, attr_t, which is not defined	in  SVr4  curses.
       The functions taking attr_t arguments are not supported under SVr4.

       The    XSI    Curses    standard   states   that   whether   the   traditional	functions
       attron/attroff/attrset can  manipulate  attributes  other  than	A_BLINK,  A_BOLD,  A_DIM,
       A_REVERSE, A_STANDOUT, or A_UNDERLINE is "unspecified".	Under this implementation as well
       as SVr4 curses, these functions correctly manipulate all other  highlights  (specifically,

       XSI  Curses  added  the new entry points, attr_get, attr_on, attr_off, attr_set, wattr_on,
       wattr_off, wattr_get, wattr_set.  These are intended to work with a new	series	of  high-
       light macros prefixed with WA_.

			WA_NORMAL	Normal display (no highlight)
			WA_STANDOUT	Best highlighting mode of the terminal.
			WA_UNDERLINE	Underlining

			WA_REVERSE	Reverse video
			WA_BLINK	Blinking
			WA_DIM		Half bright
			WA_BOLD 	Extra bright or bold
			WA_ALTCHARSET	Alternate character set

       The  XSI  curses standard specifies that each pair of corresponding A_ and WA_-using func-
       tions operates on the same current-highlight information.

       The XSI standard extended conformance level  adds  new  highlights  A_HORIZONTAL,  A_LEFT,
       A_LOW,  A_RIGHT,  A_TOP,  A_VERTICAL  (and  corresponding  WA_ macros for each) which this
       curses does not yet support.
