NAME
       form_post - write or erase forms from associated subwindows

SYNOPSIS
       #include <form.h>
       int post_form(FORM *form);
       int unpost_form(FORM *form);

DESCRIPTION
       The function post_form displays a form to its associated subwindow.  To
       trigger physical display of the subwindow, use refresh or some  equiva‐
       lent curses routine (the implicit doupdate triggered by an curses input
       request will do).

       The function unpost_form erases form from its associated subwindow.

RETURN VALUE
       These routines return one of the following:

       E_OK The routine succeeded.

       E_BAD_ARGUMENT
	    Routine detected an incorrect or out-of-range argument.

       E_BAD_STATE
	    Routine was called from an initialization or termination function.

       E_NOT_POSTED
	    The form has not been posted.

       E_NOT_CONNECTED
	    No items are connected to the form.

       E_NO_ROOM
	    Form is too large for its window.

       E_POSTED
	    The form has already been posted.

       E_SYSTEM_ERROR
	    System error occurred (see errno).

SEE ALSO
       curses(3X), form(3X).

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.
