curs_border(3X)						       curs_border(3X)

NAME
       border, wborder, box, hline, whline, vline, wvline - create curses bor‐
       ders, horizontal and vertical lines

SYNOPSIS
       #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);
       mvhline(int y, int x, chtype ch, int n);
       mvwhline(WINDOW *, int y, int x, chtype ch, int n);
       int mvvline(int y, int x, chtype ch, int n);
       int mvwvline(WINDOW *, int y, int x, chtype ch, int n);

DESCRIPTION
       The border, wborder and box routines draw a box around the edges	 of  a
       window.	 The  argument	ls  is a character and attributes used for the
       left side of the border, rs - right side, ts - top side,	 bs  -	bottom
       side,  tl - top left-hand corner, tr - top right-hand corner, bl - bot‐
       tom left-hand corner, and br - bottom right-hand	 corner.   If  any  of
       these  arguments is zero, then the following default values (defined in
       curses.h) are used 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: wbor‐
       der(win, verch, verch, horch, horch, 0, 0, 0, 0).

       The hline and whline functions 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  charac‐
       ters long, or as many as fit into the window.

       The  vline  and	wvline	functions draw a vertical (top to bottom) 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 charac‐
       ters long, or as many as fit into the window.

RETURN VALUE
       All routines return the integer OK.  The SVr4.0 manual says "or a  non-
       negative integer if immedok is set", but this appears to be an error.

NOTES
       The  borders  generated	by these functions are inside borders (this is
       also true of SVr4 curses, though the fact is not documented).

       Note that border and box may be macros.

PORTABILITY
       These functions are described in the  XSI  Curses  standard,  Issue  4.
       Additional  functions  mvhline,	mvvline,  mvwhline,  and  mvwvline are
       described there which this implementation does not  yet	support.   The
       standard	 specifies  that  they return ERR on failure, but specifies no
       error conditions.
