SYNOPSIS

       #include <curses.h>

       int border_set(
          const cchar_t *ls, const cchar_t *rs,
          const cchar_t *ts, const cchar_t *bs,

       int whline_set(
          WINDOW *win,
          const cchar_t *wch, int n);
       int mvhline_set(
          int y, int x,

       int mvwhline_set(
          WINDOW *win,
          int y, int x,
          const cchar_t *wch, int n);
       int vline_set(
          const cchar_t *wch, int n);
       int wvline_set(
          WINDOW *win,
          const cchar_t *wch, int n);
       int mvvline_set(
          int y, int x,
          const cchar_t *wch, int n);
       int mvwvline_set(
          WINDOW *win,
          int y, int x,
          const cchar_t *wch, int n);


DESCRIPTION

       The border_set and wborder_set  functions  draw  a  border
       around  the  edges  of  the  current  or specified window.
       These functions do not change the cursor position, and  do
       not wrap.

       Other  than the window, each argument is a complex charac-
       ter with attributes:
              ls - left side,
              rs - right side,
              ts - top side,
              bs - bottom side,
              tl - top left-hand corner,
              tr - top right-hand corner,
              bl - bottom left-hand corner, and
              br - bottom right-hand corner.

       If any of these arguments is zero, then the  corresponding
       default values (defined in curses.h) are used instead:
              WACS_VLINE,
              WACS_VLINE,
              WACS_HLINE,
              WACS_HLINE,
              WACS_ULCORNER,
              WACS_URCORNER,
              WACS_LLCORNER, and
              WACS_LRCORNER.

       box_set(win, verch, horch); is a shorthand for the follow-
       ing call:

       wborder_set(win, verch, verch,
           horch, horch, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL);

       The *line_set functions use wch to draw a line starting at
       the current cursor position in the window.  The line is at
       most n characters long or as many as fit into the  window.
       The current cursor position is not changed.

       The  hline_set,  mvhline_set, mvwhline_set, and whline_set
       functions draw a line proceeding toward the last column of
       the same line.

       The  vline_set,  mvvline_set, mvwvline_set, and wvline_set
       functions draw a line proceeding toward the last  line  of
       the window.


NOTES

       Note that border_set, hline_set, mvhline_set, mvvline_set,
       mvwhline_set, mvwvline_set, and vline_set may be macros.


RETURN VALUE

       Upon successful completion,  these  functions  return  OK.
       Otherwise, they return ERR.

       Functions  using  a window parameter return an error if it
       is null.

       Functions with a "mv" prefix first perform a cursor  move-
       ment  using  wmove, and return an error if the position is
       outside the window, or if the window pointer is null.
