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).
