NAME

       menu_new - create and destroy menus


SYNOPSIS

       #include <menu.h>
       MENU *new_menu(ITEM **items);
       int free_menu(MENU *menu);


DESCRIPTION

       The  function  new_menu  creates a new menu connected to a
       specified item pointer array (which  must  be  NULL-termi-
       nated).

       The  function  free_menu  disconnects  menu  from its item
       array and frees the storage allocated for the menu.


RETURN VALUE

       The function new_menu returns  NULL  on  error.   It  sets
       errno according to the function's failure:

       E_NOT_CONNECTED
            No items are connected to the menu.

       E_SYSTEM_ERROR
            System error occurred, e.g., malloc failure.

       The function free_menu returns one of the following:

       E_OK The routine succeeded.

       E_SYSTEM_ERROR
            System error occurred (see errno).

       E_BAD_ARGUMENT
            Routine  detected  an incorrect or out-of-range argu-
            ment.

       E_POSTED
            The menu has already been posted.

       The header file <menu.h> automatically includes the header
       file <curses.h>.


PORTABILITY

       These  routines  emulate  the System V menu library.  They
       were not supported on Version 7 or BSD versions.
