NAME
       border_set, wborder_set,	box_set, hline_set, whline_set,	mvhline_set,
       mvwhline_set, vline_set,	wvline_set, mvvline_set, mvwvline_set -	create
       curses borders or lines using complex characters	and renditions

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curses.h>

       int border_set(
	  const	cchar_t	*ls, const cchar_t *rs,
	  const	cchar_t	*ts, const cchar_t *bs,
	  const	cchar_t	*tl, const cchar_t *tr,
	  const	cchar_t	*bl, const cchar_t *br );
       int wborder_set(
	  WINDOW *win,
	  const	cchar_t	*ls, const cchar_t *rs,
	  const	cchar_t	*ts, const cchar_t *bs,
	  const	cchar_t	*tl, const cchar_t *tr,
	  const	cchar_t	*bl, const cchar_t *br);
       int box_set(
	  WINDOW *win,
	  const	cchar_t	*verch,
	  const	cchar_t	*horch);
       int hline_set(
	  const	cchar_t	*wch, int n);
       int whline_set(
	  WINDOW *win,
	  const	cchar_t	*wch, int n);
       int mvhline_set(
	  int y, int x,
	  const	cchar_t	*wch, int n);
       int mvwhline_set(
	  WINDOW *win,
	  int y, int x,
	  const	cchar_t	*wch, int n);
       int vline_set(
	  const	cchar_t	*wch, int n);
       int wvline_set(
	  WINDOW *win,
	  const	cchar_t	*wch, int n);
       int mvvline_set(
	  int y, int x,
	  const	cchar_t	*wch, int n);
       int mvwvline_set(
	  WINDOW *win,
	  int y, int x,
	  const	cchar_t	*wch, int n);

DESCRIPTION
       The border_set and wborder_set functions	draw a border around the edges
       of the current or specified window.  These functions do not change  the
       cursor position,	and do not wrap.

       Other  than  the	 window, each argument is a complex character with at-
       tributes:
	      ls - left	side,
	      rs - right side,
	      ts - top side,
	      bs - bottom side,
	      tl - top left-hand corner,
	      tr - top right-hand corner,
	      bl - bottom left-hand corner, and
	      br - bottom right-hand corner.

       If any of these arguments is zero, then the corresponding default  val-
       ues (defined in curses.h) are used instead:
	      WACS_VLINE,
	      WACS_VLINE,
	      WACS_HLINE,
	      WACS_HLINE,
	      WACS_ULCORNER,
	      WACS_URCORNER,
	      WACS_LLCORNER, and
	      WACS_LRCORNER.

       box_set(win, verch, horch); is a	shorthand for the following call:

       wborder_set(win,	verch, verch,
	   horch, horch, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL);

       The  *line_set functions	use wch	to draw	a line starting	at the current
       cursor position in the window.  The line	is at most n  characters  long
       or  as many as fit into the window.  The	current	cursor position	is not
       changed.

       The hline_set, mvhline_set, mvwhline_set, and whline_set	functions draw
       a line proceeding toward	the last column	of the same line.

       The vline_set, mvvline_set, mvwvline_set, and wvline_set	functions draw
       a line proceeding toward	the last line of the window.

NOTES
       Note  that  border_set,	hline_set,  mvhline_set,  mvvline_set,	 mvwh-
       line_set, mvwvline_set, and vline_set may be macros.

RETURN VALUES
       Upon successful completion, these functions return OK.  Otherwise, they
       return ERR.

       Functions using a window	parameter return an error if it	is null.
