request will do).
The function unpost_form erases form from its associated subwindow.
These routines return one of the following:
E_OK The routine succeeded.
System error occurred (see errno).
Routine detected an incorrect or out-of-range argument.
The form has already been posted.
Routine was called from an initialization or termination function.
