NAME
       form_field_info - retrieve field characteristics

SYNOPSIS
       #include <form.h>
       int field_info(const FIELD *field, int *rows, int *cols,
		     int *frow, int *fcol, int *nrow, int *nbuf);
       int dynamic_field_info(const FIELD *field, int *rows, int *cols, *max);

DESCRIPTION
       The  function  field_info returns the sizes and other attributes passed
       in to the field at its creation	time.	The  attributes	 are:  height,
       width,  row  of	upper-left corner, column of upper-left corner, number
       off-screen rows, and number of working buffers.

       The function dynamic_field_info returns the actual size of  the	field,
       and  its	 maximum  possible  size.  If the field has no size limit, the
       location addressed by the third argument will be set to	0.   (A	 field
       can be made dynamic by turning off the O_STATIC).

RETURN VALUE
       These routines return one of the following:

       E_OK The routine succeeded.

       E_SYSTEM_ERROR
	    System error occurred (see errno).

       E_BAD_ARGUMENT

       tions of the entry points.

NOTES
       The  header  file  <form.h>  automatically  includes  the  header  file
       <curses.h>.

PORTABILITY
       These  routines emulate the System V forms library.  They were not sup‐
       ported on Version 7 or BSD versions.
