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

NOTES
       The  header  file  <form.h>  automatically  includes  the  header  file
       <curses.h>.

       ported on Version 7 or BSD versions.
