curs_border(3X)                                                curs_border(3X)



NAME
       border,  wborder, box, hline, whline, vline, wvline, mvhline, mvwhline,
       mvvline, mvwvline - create  curses  borders,  horizontal  and  vertical
       lines

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curses.h>
       int border(chtype ls, chtype rs, chtype ts, chtype bs,
          chtype tl, chtype tr, chtype bl, chtype br);
       int wborder(WINDOW *win, chtype ls, chtype rs,
          chtype ts, chtype bs, chtype tl, chtype tr,
          chtype bl, chtype br);
       int box(WINDOW *win, chtype verch, chtype horch);
       int hline(chtype ch, int n);
       int whline(WINDOW *win, chtype ch, int n);
       int vline(chtype ch, int n);
       int wvline(WINDOW *win, chtype ch, int n);
       mvhline(int y, int x, chtype ch, int n);
       mvwhline(WINDOW *, int y, int x, chtype ch, int n);
       int mvvline(int y, int x, chtype ch, int n);
       int mvwvline(WINDOW *, int y, int x, chtype ch, int n);

DESCRIPTION
       The  border,  wborder and box routines draw a box around the edges of a
       window.  Other than the window,  each  argument  is  a  character  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 val-
       ues (defined in(1,8) curses.h) are used instead:
              ACS_VLINE,
              ACS_VLINE,
              ACS_HLINE,
              ACS_HLINE,
              ACS_ULCORNER,
              ACS_URCORNER,
              ACS_LLCORNER,
              ACS_LRCORNER.

       box(win, verch, horch) is a shorthand for  the  following  call:  wbor-
       der(win, verch, verch, horch, horch, 0, 0, 0, 0).

       The  hline  and whline functions draw a horizontal (left to right) line
       using ch starting at the current cursor position in(1,8)  the  window.   The
       current  cursor position is not changed.  The line is at most n charac-
       ters long, or as many as fit into the window.

       The vline and wvline functions draw a vertical  (top  to  bottom)  line
       using  ch  starting  at the current cursor position in(1,8) the window.  The
       current cursor position is not changed.  The line is at most n  charac-
       ters long, or as many as fit into the window.

RETURN VALUE
       All  routines return the integer OK.  The SVr4.0 manual says "or a non-
       negative integer if(3,n) immedok is set(7,n,1 builtins)", but this appears to be an error.

NOTES
       The borders generated by these functions are inside  borders  (this  is
       also true of SVr4 curses, though the fact is not documented).

       Note that border and box may be macros.

PORTABILITY
       These functions are described in(1,8) the XSI Curses standard, Issue 4.  The
       standard specifies that they return ERR on failure,  but  specifies  no
       error(8,n) conditions.
