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 reallo-
       cates storage for an ncurses window to adjust  its  dimen-
       sions  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 rendi-
       tion (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.
