mitem_new - create and destroy menu items
ITEM *new_item(const char *name, const char *description);
int free_item(ITEM *item);
The function new_item allocates a new item and initializes it from the name and descrip-
tion pointers. Please notice that the item stores only the pointers to the name and
description. Those pointers must be valid during the lifetime of the item. So you should
be very carefull with names or descriptions allocated on the stack of some routines.
The function free_item de-allocates an item. Please notice that it is the responsibility
of the application to release the memory for the name or the description of the item.
The function new_item returns NULL on error.
The function free_item returns one of the following:
E_OK The routine succeeded.
System error occurred (see errno).
Routine detected an incorrect or out-of-range argument.
Item is connected to a menu.
The header file <menu.h> automatically includes the header file <curses.h>.
These routines emulate the System V menu library. They were not supported on Version 7 or
