curs_border(3X)						       curs_border(3X)

NAME
       border,	wborder, box, hline, whline, vline, wvline, mvhline, mvwhline,
       mvvline,	mvwvline - create  curses  borders,  horizontal	 and  vertical
       lines

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curses.h>
       int border(chtype ls, chtype rs,	chtype ts, chtype bs,
	  chtype tl, chtype tr,	chtype bl, chtype br);
       int wborder(WINDOW *win,	chtype ls, chtype rs,
	  chtype ts, chtype bs,	chtype tl, chtype tr,
	  chtype bl, chtype br);
       int box(WINDOW *win, chtype verch, chtype horch);
       int hline(chtype	ch, int	n);
       int whline(WINDOW *win, chtype ch, int n);
       int vline(chtype	ch, int	n);
       int wvline(WINDOW *win, chtype ch, int n);
       mvhline(int y, int x, chtype ch,	int n);
       mvwhline(WINDOW *, int y, int x,	chtype ch, int n);
       int mvvline(int y, int x, chtype	ch, int	n);
       int mvwvline(WINDOW *, int y, int x, chtype ch, int n);

DESCRIPTION
       The  border,  wborder and box routines draw a box around	the edges of a
       window.	The argument ls	is a character and  attributes	used  for  the
       left  side  of  the border, rs -	right side, ts - top side, bs -	bottom
       side, tl	- top left-hand	corner,	tr - top right-hand corner, bl -  bot-
       tom  left-hand  corner,	and  br	- bottom right-hand corner.  If	any of
       these arguments is zero,	then the following default values (defined  in
       curses.h) are used instead: ACS_VLINE, ACS_VLINE, ACS_HLINE, ACS_HLINE,
       ACS_ULCORNER, ACS_URCORNER, ACS_LLCORNER, ACS_LRCORNER.

       box(win,	verch, horch) is a shorthand for  the  following  call:	 wbor-
       der(win,	verch, verch, horch, horch, 0, 0, 0, 0).

       The  hline  and whline functions	draw a horizontal (left	to right) line
       using ch	starting at the	current	cursor position	in  the	 window.   The
       current	cursor position	is not changed.	 The line is at	most n charac-
       ters long, or as	many as	fit into the window.

       The vline and wvline functions draw a vertical (top to bottom) line us-
       ing ch starting at the current cursor position in the window.  The cur-
       rent cursor position is not changed.  The line is at most n  characters
       long, or	as many	as fit into the	window.

RETURN VALUE
       All  routines return the	integer	OK.  The SVr4.0	manual says "or	a non-
       negative	integer	if immedok is set", but	this appears to	be an error.

NOTES
       The borders generated by	these functions	are inside  borders  (this  is
       also true of SVr4 curses, though	the fact is not	documented).

       Note that border	and box	may be macros.

PORTABILITY
       These functions are described in	the XSI	Curses standard, Issue 4.  Ad-
       ditional	functions mvhline, mvvline, mvwhline,  and  mvwvline  are  de-
       scribed	there  which  this  implementation  does not yet support.  The
       standard	specifies that they return ERR on failure,  but	 specifies  no
       error conditions.
