NAME
       wresize - resize	a curses window

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curses.h>

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

DESCRIPTION
       This is an extension to the curses library.  It 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 wbkgdset)	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.

PORTABILITY
       It is not possible to resize windows with SVr4 curses.

       This extension of ncurses was introduced	in mid-1995.  It  was  adopted
       in NetBSD curses	(2001) and PDCurses (2003).

SEE ALSO
       resizeterm(3X).

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