DESCRIPTION
       The  function set_menu_fore sets	the foreground attribute of menu. This
       is the highlight	used for selected menu items.  menu_fore  returns  the
       foreground attribute.  The default is A_REVERSE.

       The  function set_menu_back sets	the background attribute of menu. This
       is the highlight	used for selectable (but not currently selected)  menu
       items.	The  function menu_back	returns	the background attribute.  The
       default is A_NORMAL.

       The function set_menu_grey sets the grey	attribute of menu. This	is the
       highlight  used	for un-selectable menu items in	menus that permit more
       than one	selection.  The	function menu_grey returns the grey attribute.
       The default is A_UNDERLINE.

       The function set_menu_pad sets the character used to fill the space be-
       tween the name and description parts of a menu item.  menu_pad  returns
       the given menu's	pad character.	The default is a blank.
