Every form field has a field that can be used to hold application-spe‐
cific data (that is, the form-driver code leaves it alone). These
functions get and set that field.
The function field_userptr returns NULL on error. The function
set_field_userptr returns one of the following:
E_OK The routine succeeded.
System error occurred (see errno).

These routines emulate the System V forms library. They were not sup‐
ported on Version 7 or BSD versions.
The user pointer should be a void pointer. We leave it as a char
pointer for SVr4 compatibility.
