wresize(3X)							   wresize(3X)

NAME
       wresize - resize	a curses window

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curses.h>

       int wresize(WINDOW *win,	int lines, int columns);

DESCRIPTION
       The  wresize  function  reallocates  storage  for  an ncurses window to
       adjust its dimensions to	the specified values.  If either dimension  is
       larger than the current values, the window's data is filled with	blanks
       that have the current background	rendition (as set by wbkgndset)	merged
       into them.

RETURN VALUE
       The  function  returns  the integer ERR upon failure and	OK on success.
       It will fail if either of the dimensions	less than or equal to zero, or
       if an error occurs while	(re)allocating memory for the window.

NOTES
       The  only  restriction placed on	the dimensions is that they be greater
       than zero.  The dimensions are not compared to curses screen dimensions
       to  simplify  the logic of resizeterm.  The caller must ensure that the
       window's	dimensions fit within the actual screen	dimensions.

SEE ALSO
       resizeterm(3X).

AUTHOR
       Thomas Dickey (from an equivalent function  written  in	1988  for  BSD
       curses).
